Moheileh's story: "Family is all I have left"
Description: Moheileh, 60, had her leg amputated after her home was struck by a bomb in Syria. After coming to Zaatari camp four years ago, someone told Moheileh about Handicap International. After her first meeting with our team, they gave her a walking stick, then a walking frame, and soon after she was fit with an artificial leg. Moheileh's grandchildren attend her physical therapy sessions. Moheileh tells our team, "My family is all I have left. I hope that one day, we will all be together again."

How can education support peace in Lebanon?
Description: International Alert held a conference in Beirut to discuss the power of education to improve peaceful relations in Lebanon, which is facing growing pressures and tensions because of the Syrian refugee crisis. Watch panellists Rania Zakhia, Education Specialist at UNICEF Lebanon, and our lead Researcher Lana Khattab share some insights from our upcoming report on the links between education and social stability. We also hear from our Middle East and North Africa Programmes Manager Rebecca Crozier.

Lifesaving Foreign Assistance is #WorthThePenny
Description: The President has proposed a budget to slash lifesaving U.S. foreign assistance. This funding has long been a key pillar in our nation's leadership role in saving lives and bringing about a safer, more prosperous and more equitable world. Slashing these programs – which make up just one percent of the U.S. federal budget, or one penny on the dollar – wouldn’t balance the budget or pay for significant new domestic spending. But it would have a disastrous impact on the lives of millions of women, girls and families worldwide. It's not too late to reverse course. This proposal does not have to become law. Only Congress has the power to protect these lifesaving programs. But they won't act unless they hear from you. Tell Congress today: Foreign assistance is #WorthThePenny. Don't put this lifesaving aid on the chopping block. Go to http://www.care.org to sign the petition.

The number of people moving through Hammam al-Alil has surged in recent days, with around 8,000–12,000 arrivals daily.

There's a New Effective Vaccine to Combat Rotavirus
Description: Diarrhea is still one of the main killers in developing countries. Rotavirus is the main agent that causes severe gastroenteritis. It can very quickly lead to fatal dehydration, especially among very young children. Together with the Niger Ministry of Health, the Doctors Without Borders innovation unit and Epicentre, our epidemiological research center set up a clinical trial in order to test a new oral vaccine against rotavirus. The initial results of this clinical trial have proven that the vaccine is effective in Niger, drastically reducing cases of diarrhea and their severity among the children who have received the vaccine. It is essential to convince health ministries to include this new oral vaccine in their vaccination programs: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/article/new-cheaper-and-heat-stable-rotavirus-vaccine-could-prevent-thousands-childhood-deaths Follow our tech and innovation twitter accounts! @MSF_innovation and @MSFSci
