Speaking up on silent disasters

To raise awareness about the  numerous disasters and emergencies in the world which  go underreported and end up forgotten, the European Commission launched a campaign together with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC).
Disasters such as widespread hunger in Southern Africa, a devastating earthquake in Tajikistan, and multiple disease outbreaks in Uganda will be highlighted and illustrated in a 50-second film spot in European cinemas and on television as well as on websites, social media and in print.
As part of the 4-week long awareness campaign in 11 European countries, the IFRC, the Commission and the Red Cross will draw public attention to these silent disasters around the world.
