Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami, Sept. 28
A 7.6 Richter earthquake has hit the large Indonesian island of Palu, causing a tsunami. Early reports suggest that nearly 1,000 villages are affected and more than 800 deaths have been reported.
Our staff are already on the ground, responding to children and families who have lost everything. We're assessing the impact of the disaster and the best way to respond.
In 2017, the number of people in the world suffering from hunger has increased for the third year in a row, according to the United Nations, to 821 million people. After years of progress, conflict has contributed to global hunger numbers rising to levels last seen a decade ago.
World Vision opened last September 22, Saturday its first dedicated ‘safe spaces’ for children affected by Typhoon Ompong (International name Mangkhut). The spaces allow children to continue learning, playing, and start coming to terms with the disaster. The first Child-Friendly Space (CFS) was set up in Itogon, community of Benguet province where the highest number of death toll was recorded due to landslides.

World Vision Communications Consultant, Kasai Response
1. Violence in the Kasai region escalated from 2016 to 2017
It was due to a local dispute between a chief and the national government. In Kasai Central, Jean-Prince Mpandi inherited the Kamuina Nsapu chieftancy in 2012 but the government saw him as someone who was aligned with the opposition and refused to recognize him. Mpandi, in turn, began to act out against any symbols of government power in his area.
