Europe's Humanitarian Crisis

Reply Mon 3 Feb, 2014 06:32 am
Europe is facing its worst humanitarian crisis in six decades," according to the general secretary of the International Federation of Red Cross (IFCR), Bekele Geleta. The 68-page survey, published on Thursday (10.10.13) by the humanitarian organization, declares that while other continents successfully reduce poverty, in Europe it seems to be on the rise.

Five years after the onset of the financial crisis, millions of people are still falling into poverty, living on a hand-to-mouth basis with no savings to cover any unplanned expenses. According to the Red Cross this could lead to huge livelihood insecurity. The study included 52 states and is based on figures from Eurostat, the statistical institution of the European Union.

Most of the members here are native English-speakers--Americans, English, Canadians and Australians. While they would not necessarily be indifferent to the problems of Europe, apart from the English, they are not likely to evince much interest either. Overwhelmingly, the members here are Americans. You are not likely to get much of a response from them, although conservative political fanatics would probably be willing to blame Europe's problems on what they allege to be a faulty political ethos.
