2. Hunger afflicting Chads Children

Doctors in Chad have been working overtime, to deal with the upsurge in malnutrition cases, in very young children. This has occurred due to the climate of the country’s economic state since the decline of the price of oil in 2015, the situation has worsened. Chad’s health sector has been incredibly affected, 2017, and the international health budget has been cut from 2013-to 2017, Aljazeera reports.  By the end of the year, “over 262,000 children, up to 5 years old suffer from acute malnutrition.”

3. U.S plans to close Palestinian liberation organization office in D.C

Due to Palestine’s refusal to enter into negotiations with Israel and the US, the U.S have reacted by ensuring the Palestinian liberation organisation head diplomatic office in D.C. PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat said in a statement: “This is yet another affirmation of the Trump administration’s policy to collectively punish the Palestinian people, including by cutting financial support for humanitarian services including health and education.”
