Formé dans l'océan Indien, le cyclone Enawo (catégorie 4) a frappé le 7 mars 2017 les côtes nord-est de Madagascar, dans la région d'Antalaha, accompagné de pluies diluviennes et de vents soufflant en rafales jusqu'à 290 km/h.
Il a le lendemain touché Antananarivo, la capitale située en plein centre de l'île, avant d'être reclassé par les services météorologiques en "dépression tropicale" puis de quitter le territoire malgache.
Syria Crisis: Digital support for schools at the heart of the conflict
For over 6 years, Syrian children have been going through the worst humanitarian crisis in the modern world, to such an extent that its consequences go far beyond the country's frontiers. As the civil unrest continues to shake Syria, more and more children have no choice but to abandon their schooling. Whilst many have sought refuge outside of the country, over 30% (representing some 1.75 million children) remain out-of-school within Syria.
We have all seen the images in the media. The death toll is rising in Aleppo as the days go by, whilst those who do manage to survive incessant bombing fight to flee the city.
In Syria since 2012, TSF connections in Aleppo have also fallen victim to the air strikes - the three connections initially set up for medical assistance in the city have been destroyed by bombs over the past few months.
Under the fumes of the burning oil fields surrounding Mosul and violent combats just a few miles away, TSF's team in Iraq has set up internet via VSAT for the humanitarian community in the town of Qayyarah.
As pro-government forces are edging closer to the centre of Mosul, the humanitarian community is working around the clock to prepare for the mass population displacement that is likely to ensue.
TSF has deployed a team from its Asia/Pacific base to the heart of the crisis in Iraq, where 17,610 people have fled the Mosul district and its surrounding areas since the beginning of the offensive of 17th October.
TSF will be working to carry out assessments in the coming days and will adapt its response according to the findings on the ground.
