Children’s rights and aid organisations call for immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip as violence escalates

Thursday night, on July 17, the Israeli government approved the expansion of its military operation in the Gaza Strip and launched a ground incursion. This follows 10 days of heavy airstrikes and shellings by Israeli forces which have killed 266 Palestinians and injured over 1,700, the majority civilians. This new development is likely to dramatically increase the already high level of violence and suffering of the civilian population in the Gaza Strip, particularly in the case of children.

Tdh’s interventions in East and North Africa [EN/FR]

In East and North Africa, Terre des hommes (Tdh) helps vulnerable children build a better future. In particular, the Foundation assists working children by offering services to enable them to get access to education and a better work environment. Tdh also makes employers and local communities more aware of the risks of exploitation. Mechanisms for identifying, guiding and monitoring the most vulnerable children (orphans, migrants, etc.) are put in place. And finally, Tdh works to strengthen the judicial system for minors by way of advocacy, workshops and training courses.

«Avec l’aide de Terre des hommes, je suis devenue cuisinière»

«Ce qui m’a le plus marquée dans mon statut de fille domestique, c’est lorsque ma patronne me servait de la nourriture en petites quantités. Je détestais aussi les injures, les coups des patronnes». Cette burkinabé, Aïssata*, est maintenant sortie de la domesticité. Inscrite par Terre des hommes (Tdh) à une formation de restauration, elle est maintenant cuisinière. En parallèle, elle aide d’autres jeunes filles à sortir de l’exploitation.
