Among the many risks children face in Myanmar, tuberculosis is one that develops slowly and often unnoticed by parents and teachers. Fortunately for seven-year-old first grader, Lin Lae Cho is seven, who lives in a village in the far southwest of the Ayeyarwaddy River delta, her TB was detected when her parents started to notice that their normally active and happy was unwell with a fever and coughing. When they saw blood from her cough and realized she was not breathing normally, they took her to see a nearby doctor, who ordered an immediate chest X-ray to confirm a TB diagnosis.
So far this year, at least 140 million people across 37 countries have been left in need of humanitarian aid. But most of them will not get it
During one of my visits to a Women and Girls Centre in Myitkyina, a displaced Kachin woman told me a very personal story of how she and her husband transformed their relationship.
Armed clashes in Baghlan, Kapisa, Kunduz and Nangarhar provinces have displaced more than 20,200 people. Since January 2017, more than 146,400 people were driven from their homes due to conflict across Afghanistan. This is one quarter less compared to the same period in 2016, in which 196,112 people were displaced. Some 58 per cent of all displaced people are girls and boys under 18 years old. Displacement has been reported in 29 out of the 34 provinces.

A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
Monsoon rains in the last week of July 2016 brought extensive flooding in several townships of Ayeyarwarddy, Bago, Magway, Mandalay, Sagaing and Yangon regions and parts of Kachin State. The Relief and Resettlement Department (RRD) reported on 16 August 2016 that at least 474,560 people were displaced from their homes due to the floods.
Changes in context:
Last year 574 disasters were reported around the globe and 108 million people have been affected, according to the latest infographic by the Aid & International Development Forum. The vast majority (92%) of natural disasters are due to global warming. Out of 65.3 million displaced people around the world over 14% are being hosted in Asia and the Pacific.
5.1 M earthquake shook Taik Kyi. The earthquake has damaged about 40 buildings. 26 people were also reportedly injured.
194 houses were damaged by landslide in South Minahasa, North Sulawesi Province

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today announced that it has successfully delivered emergency assistance to more than six thousand rural households across Rakhine State, a region of Myanmar where nearly half the population is engaged in the agriculture sector.
In order to avoid food insecurity and improve self-sufficiency, following two years of flooding and inter-communal violence, more than 26 000 farmers have received some 200 tonnes of high quality seeds and more than 500 tonnes of fertilizer.
At times of upheaval, pregnancy-related deaths and sexual violence increase. Reproductive health services—including prenatal care, skilled attendance at birth and emergency obstetric care—are often impacted and sometimes unavailable. Young people become more vulnerable to unsafe sex leading to HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and sexual exploitation. And many wom- en lose access to family planning services, exposing them to unwanted pregnancy in perilous conditions.
