Helene Boeser of SOS Children’s Villages Netherlands spent nine days evaluating the emergency response in Peru, which is still recovering from March floods and landslides. The disaster left an estimated 1.4 million people in need of assistance, including 400,000 children.
The emergency programme has focused on repairing damages to SOS villages – Esperanza, Chiclayo, and Río Hondo – and helping 860 families and more than 1,000 children in nearby communities. These communities are in the northern coastal city of Chiclayo and six locations in central Chosica and Carapongo.
ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN GROSSLY UNDERFUNDED WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION
New report shows only a small fraction of official development assistance goes toward ending violence against children For the first time, a review of official development assistance (ODA) to end violence against children has been done. The report Counting Pennies found that in 2015, total ODA spending was $174 billion and of that, less than 0.6 per cent was allocated to ending violence against children.
New report exposes prevalence of violence against children and describes effective projects around world to reduce and prevent it.
SOS Children’s Villages launched an emergency programme in 2014 to help children and families affected by the conflict in eastern Ukraine. It is one of the few organisations working on both sides of the contact line.
