One year after the cyclone Phailin, the situation remains precarious for many

Balanasi is a place where sand is everywhere—in the street, on the trees, underneath the covers. It reveals the closeness of the village with the water: Balanasi sits on an isthmus that straddles Chilika Lagoon, the largest body of water of its kind in South Asia. Here, nearly every one of the 145 residents squeezes out a living by fishing the nearby waters. In October 2013, Cyclone Phailin hit Balanasi, and pounded the village for hours. In its wake, almost every house was damaged and half of the boats were lost.

Positive reception to the new juvenile justice project

Present in Sudan since 2004, Terre des hommes (Tdh) held a ceremony to mark the official launch of a new juvenile justice project on September 22, 2014 in Khartoum. The project started up on April 1 and is entitled “Promotion and protection of the rights of children in conflict with the law”. The project covers all youths suspected, accused, or found guilty of having committed an offense. It aims to protect and promote the rights of children in conflict with the law and reduce their contact with the Khartoum state government’s formal justice system.

Gaza: Tdh responds to children's thirst

After a summer that was marked by more than 50 days of violent conflict along the Gaza Strip, life is slowly starting to return to normal. Many children are now back at school; the lengthy rebuilding of infrastructure has begun.

Despite these efforts, the humanitarian needs are still huge. The sanitary situation is disastrous: around 450,000 people still do not have access to clean or treated water. Terre des hommes (Tdh) is continuing to distribute 6,000 litres of clean water each day as well as hygiene kits, helping 600 families in the north of the Gaza Strip.
