Senate Undercuts Effort to Stop ‘Drug War’ Killing Spree
(New York, September 20, 2016) – The Philippine Senate has ousted the chair of the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights in an apparent reprisal for her inquiry into the surge in killings linked to President Rodrigo Duterte’s “war on drugs,” Human Rights Watch said today. The Senate should seek Sen. Leila De Lima’s immediate reinstatement to signal its support for justice and human rights.
This morning, September 19, the DSWD National Resource Operations Office (NROO) was able to airlift additional 200 boxes of corned beef and generator sets to Batanes as requested by the provincial government and the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Response Cluster during the first relief mission to the island on September 17.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is set to provide stress debriefing to Typhoon ‘Ferdie’ survivors in Batanes.

While the 2015-2016 El Niño weather event is now over, humanitarian needs continue to grow, and are not expected to peak until early 2017 as food security continues to deteriorate in many regions. WFP, working closely with partners on the ground, is rapidly scaling up life-saving operations for communities reeling from the catastrophic effects of El Niño.
The international community is neglecting millions of vulnerable babies and young children affected by conflicts and disasters, a shocking report by children’s charity Theirworld warns today.
They will suffer from psychological trauma, toxic stress and poor brain development unless their needs are prioritised in humanitarian response plans.
The failure to plan for and finance early childhood development services in emergencies - ensuring "safe spaces" for all children - could have lifelong detrimental effects, according to Theirworld.
