Many of this week's PD News headlines focused on the role foreign aid can play in helping those in the direst of conditions and as a public diplomacy tool that is currently under threat in certain places. President Trump orders an expansion of the ban that prevents aid to international NGOs that provide or support abortion, while the EU pushes for unrestricted humanitarian access to northwest Myanmar in support of displaced Rohingya Muslims, and a two-year European partnership to bring safe drinking water to Nairobi’s poorest citizens reaches completion.
