Copenhagen (March 10, 2019) -- It is with profound sadness that Save the Children confirms the loss of one of our dear colleagues, Tamirat Mulu Demessie, in the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 from Addis Ababa to Nairobi earlier today. Tamirat Mulu Demessie served via Save the Children Denmark as a Child Protection in Emergencies Technical Adviser, working tirelessly to ensure that vulnerable children are safe during humanitarian crises. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this very difficult time.
Today, EU member states have published their position on the 2019 EU budget. While they propose a spending increase of 10 percent for the EU’s external policies compared to this year’s budget, governments are focusing on the wrong issues, Oxfam, Save the Children, DSW and IPPF EN say. The organizations argue a strong focus on human development is needed to counter increasing inequalities and make sure no one is left behind.
