Stella Flanders, the oldest resident of Goat Island, has just celebrated her 95th birthday. She has never crossed the reach, the body of water that separates the Island from the mainland, in her entire life.

She tells her great-grandchildren when they ask, "I never saw any reason to go. Her visions start with her dead husband inviting her to "come across to the mainland. As her impending death draws near, Stella encounters more apparitions of the dead of Goat Island, and she makes peace with the knowledge that it is her time to go. Dressed in her warmest clothes, plus her son's long johns and hat, Stella heads across the frozen reach toward the mainland.

As she starts her trek, it starts to snow - the blowing wind, along with the snow, makes it difficult for her to find her way and she becomes afraid of being lost in the storm. Along her walk, she meets up with the woman who was her best friend, Annabelle, as well as several others. When the wind whips the hat off of her head, her late husband, Bill, appears and gives her his hat.

She is surrounded by her friends and family and they sing to her as she crosses over from this life.

Stella Flanders is found, dead, sitting up right on a rock on the mainland. Her son, Alden, recognizes his father's hat. He comes to believe that the dead sing and that they love those still living.

Stephen King's inspiration for "The Reach" came about from the story his brother-in-law, Tommy, told him while in the Coast Guard. The real-life alter-ego of Stella Flanders lived and died on a small Maine Island, never setting foot on the mainland. She remained on a small stretch of land with a community so close, they were more like family. She had everything she needed on this island and had no need to cross the Reach until the day she died.

Being intrigued by the idea of the Reach, and flabbergasted with Flanders' counterpart, King came up with the idea for this short story. When it was published in Skeleton CrewKing changed it back to the original title.REACH regularly collects and shares vital information on the impact of the spread of the coronavirus and its effect on affected populations. Regular updates, key findings and contact information. The Humanitarian Response Plan in Afghanistan was updated this year to include a renewed focus on the situation in informal settlements, the needs of the long-displaced populations within them, and the extent to which they are included in humanitarian and development caseloads.

However, the needs, demographics, and current living conditions of these often-overlooked populations are not well understood. We call on the Security Council of the United Nations to create a reporting, monitoring and investigation mechanism that — while preserving humanitarian space — would make attacks against humanitarians a systematic trigger for action aimed at enhancing judicial cooperation so as to bring perpetrators to justice and deterring future attacks.

Engage citizens in developing solutions. Mobilizing Change Framework.Each year, more thanpeople die from rheumatic heart disease RHD. The burden is greatest in the most productive years of life for those who can least afford it. The absolute burden of disease, the social effect, economic cost and the abject inequality of RHD demand urgent global action.

Almost exclusively, the people who die of RHD live in low- and middle-income countries or in vulnerable communities in high-income countries. Their deaths are preventable with medical knowledge and antibiotics which have existed for more than half a century.

REACH Program Impact

In high resource settings socioeconomic and medical determinants have functionally eradicated RHD. Yet preventing, diagnosing and treating RF and RHD remains a fitful struggle in low resource settings.

Death and disability from RHD continues to extract an enormous social, economic and cultural toll on young adults and their communities. Reach provides technical support and policy translation to amplify rheumatic heart disease control efforts locally, regionally and globally. As an organisation we aim to identify, describe and disseminate solutions for this neglected disease and to reduce the burden on vulnerable populations around the world.

As a collaborative organization, we partner with a broad range of stakeholders — including clinicians, other disease communities, academics, donors, governments, industry and people living with RHD — to achieve our common goals. Sophie brings extensive experience working with governments and development partners on public health program implementation and evaluation, and provision of technical support.
