Children are bearing the brunt of the worst floods to hit Thailand in 50 years, according to Christian Today. The flood waters, which are affecting 26 provinces in the central and northeastern regions of the country, have claimed at least 373 lives and affected more than 600,000 children. Some suburbs of Bangkok are already deluged, including an airport -- jeopardizing the national flood response headquartered there -- and the city's center has been warned of several feet of water if flood barriers break. "We are deeply concerned by the impact of the disaster, especially on the hundreds of thousands of children," said Chitra Thumborisuth, World Vision Thailand's national director. "Houses are muddy and soiled with debris. Families need to replace their basic household appliances and utensils, not to mention find a way of salvaging their livelihoods." World Vision has set up two child-friendly shelters and continues to distribute emergency food and relief items.
