The death toll from Typhoon Mangkut has reached 81 and local officials fear it could be more than 100, after a community was hit by a landslide in Benguet due to heavy rains. The Department of Education reported over 30,000 affected schools. We are on the ground, working with authorities to keep children safe and healthy.

Three year old Masy tested positive for Malaria. Fortunately, it was caught early and so it is easily treatable. When left untreated it quickly leads to severe complications and death. We are working closely with @WHO and other partners to achieve a world free of malaria. #ForEveryChild

"I like it here lots, I hope I can come every day!" Donut, 2, attends a UNICEF child friendly space at a camp for families displaced by flooding in Laos. So far six child friendly spaces have been set up, supporting 1,000 children.

In July, a flash flood smashed through eight villages in Attapeu, Laos. We’re helping children affected with nutrition, water, sanitation, education and child protection services.

Meet baby Nahawa, born one week premature and underweight in Bougouni, Mali. She’s being kept warm and nourished through breastfeeding and skin-to-skin contact with her mother. Most newborn deaths in Mali are the result of asphyxia, infections or prematurity. These deaths are largely preventable with the help of quality, affordable health care. Despite progress, mothers and newborn babies face steep challenges. In Koumantou, down the road from where Nahawa lives, there’s only one doctor, trained by UNICEF, to serve the entire population. To save more lives, we’re calling on governments to invest more in maternal and child health. #EveryChildALIVE #HealthForAll

Jairo hugs his little brother Marvin in the bedroom that they share with their mother. Jairo is being bullied at school. "I'm hit in the back. They stick their foot [out] so I'll stumble and fall," he says. “I have no friends, not even one. Sometimes in the afternoon I go out on my bicycle to relax and forget what they do to me in school. All I do is swallow the pain. I feel a hole in my heart," says Jairo. For millions of students around the world violence is an everyday lesson. Together, we can #ENDviolence in schools.
