A.1 Description of the disaster
The humanitarian situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) remains extremely serious two years after the current crisis erupted in December 2013 . Some 2.7 million people – or more than half of the population – are in need of assistance, and over 1.2 million children now need urgent aid, according to Unicef.
FEATURE - ‘Ebola is under control!’ headlines affirmed the other week. The disease has made no new victims in Sierra Leone since the outbreak started in April 2014. But the recovery process will still take a long time: not only have people died, but the economy has been severely disrupted and survivors, especially children, are left without care or protection. Mr Siapha Kamara, CEO of our partner SEND West-Africa, tells us about the struggles of rebuilding and the heroism of his staff.

BANGKOK, Nov 27 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A Myanmar military offensive against ethnic rebels in the country's east has uprooted more than 10,000 people, rights groups said, accusing the army of bombing schools and Buddhist temples, firing on civilians and raping women.
Babu Ram Fyuba joined OCHA Nepal as a District Coordination Officer in June 2015 to support the earthquake response in Dhading district from the Gorkha humanitarian hub.

The humanitarian community continues to report worsening security conditions and increasing access constraints across South Sudan. In October, the UN recorded 78 access incidents negatively affecting relief operations in South Sudan, including increasing reports of criminality in the capital city of Juba.
Gregorio Gaviola, one of the survivors of Typhoon Koppu in the Philippines, broke down in happy tears when a Tzu Chi volunteer handed him a bag filled with relief supplies.
“This is enough to sustain us for the next month." the 83-year-old said of the food and clothes.
It was a scene that, on November 11, was repeated over and over as dozens of Tzu Chi volunteers worked to distribute aid to thousands of typhoon victims in the hard-hit Nueva Ecija Province of the Philippines.
Following typhoon Haiyan (known as Yolanda in Philippines), the Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation in Philippines began to construct 2,000 prefab houses in hard-hit Ormoc. Construction at the resettlement site started on Sept. 27, 2014.

In the past two weeks, no Ebola case was reported in Guinea.
Thus, the total number of confirmed cases remains at 3,351 out of which 749 children.
Guinea will be declared Ebola Free if no case is reported on 29 December 2015. As of 25 November 2015, the countdown is at day 9 over 42.
The preliminary ndings of Vasyr 2015, as well as the data from the household proling exercise continue to highlight the increasing diculties of Syrian refugees in meeting their basic needs. To complement the risk of increased vulnerability due to an approaching winter, the sector has completed and started to implement the winter support plan, along with endorsing packages and a methodology as per the 2014’s lessons learnt and recommendations.
This Revised Emergency Appeal adjusts the budget of the Emergency Appeal, launched on 11 August 2015, from CHF 3.9 million to CHF 3.2 million and outlines implementation approaches agreed for the recovery phase. The revised appeal budget includes a provision of CHF 125,800 for shelter cluster coordination.
MSF hadn’t expected to build wooden shelters in Calais. The refugees who ended up at the “Jungle” site didn’t expect to stay for long. Calais was to be just one phase of their journey, but it has become nearly impossible to continue on to England. With winter approaching, MSF will provide shelters to protect them from the cold, in collaboration with a project initiated by volunteers.
