7 annoying things and one we can change I UNICEF
Description: There are many bothersome things we may have to live with but we should not have to live with 1.5 million children dying every year from diseases that can be prevented with vaccines. Last year, we procured 2.5 billion doses of vaccines to children in nearly 100 countries, reaching almost half of the world’s children under the age of five. Access to immunization has led to a dramatic decrease in deaths of children under five from vaccine-preventable diseases, and has brought the world closer to eradicating polio. Yet an estimated 19.4 million children around the world still miss out on full vaccinations every year. Inequalities persist between rich and poor children. In countries where 80% of the world’s under-five child deaths occur, over half of the poorest children are not fully vaccinated. Globally, the poorest children are nearly twice as likely to die before the age of five as the richest. All children, no matter where they live or what their circumstances are, have the right to survive and thrive.

A Syrian family's heartbreak in search for safety | UNICEF
Description: 10-year-old Sham and her family were forced to flee their home in Syria to escape the war. Once they reached Libya they paid smugglers to sail them to Europe. Their journey across the Mediterranean was horrific. The boat sank and they were abandoned by the smugglers. The family were rescued and reunited except for their son who didn’t survive the journey. At least 849 people died crossing the Mediterranean to Italy in the first four months of 2017 and we estimate that more than 150 were children.. The true number of child casualties is almost certainly higher given that many children on the move are unaccompanied, so their deaths often go unreported. No one should be forced to risk their life in search of safety or a better future. It’s on all of us to stand with children uprooted.

A deadly lack of safe water in Somalia I UNICEF
Description: In 2011 famine was declared in Somalia. Now, in 2017, famine once again is looming over the drought-struck country. Not only are children suffering from malnutrition but this has resulted in an outbreak of cholera and acute diarrhea. As of today, 22,000 cases have been reported and Baidoa, Somalia, is one of the epicentres. There is no clean water for drinking or sanitation, which means diseases can quickly spread. We’re on the ground delivering life-saving supplies, support and helping nurses like Amina boost morale of the patients. Together with partners we’re aiming to reach 1.5 million people with clean water and sanitation services in 2017.

Surge in girls being used in Boko Haram ‘suicide’ attacks | UNICEF
Description: 3 years since 276 girls were abducted from Chibok, Nigeria, there has been an alarming surge in number of children used in Boko Haram ‘suicide’ attacks. The increase reflects an alarming tactic by the insurgents, according to our new report Silent Shame: Bringing out the voices of children caught in the Lake Chad crisis. So far, 117 children have been used to carry out bomb attacks in public places across Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon since 2014: four in 2014, 56 in 2015, 30 in 2016 and 27 only in the first three months of 2017. Girls have been used in the vast majority of these attacks. The recruitment and use of children in armed conflict as so-called ‘suicide bombers’ must stop.

Portraits from US students give Syrian children hope | UNICEF
Description: The Memory Project is an inspiring organization that invites art teachers and their students to create and donate portraits to children and young people around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents, violence, and extreme poverty. After 6 years of war in Syria, nearly 6 million children now depend on aid, with almost half forced to flee their homes. American high school students recently sent portraits to Syrian children in Za’atari refugee camp, Jordan. The children were delighted with the results. The purpose of the portraits is to help children feel valued and important, to know that many people care, and to act as meaningful pieces of personal history.

Fleeing conflict only to face sexual violence I UNICEF
Description: Hundreds of thousands of children have fled their homes due to conflict, many are victims of gender-based violence. “I was powerless, and when you’re powerless and your mouth is shut there’s nothing you can do.” This is the story of a 14-year-old girl who fled to Juba, South Sudan, after fighting started in Bentiu and her father was killed. She shares with us the moment when a man took her rights away. A quarter of reported cases of conflict-related sexual violence in South Sudan are against children.

Catastrophe is looming in South Sudan I UNICEF
Description: “The situation is extremely bad. If we don’t do enough, we’ll go to catastrophe phase.” UNICEF nutrition expert Judi explains as she takes us through her tireless work on the ground to prevent catastrophe, not only by providing life-saving aid but by preventing diseases and establishing outreach centres for families. “My child has not eaten since this morning.

Ukraine: When a bomb shelter becomes a part of daily life | UNICEF
Description: Meet 17-year-old Dasha, who lives in eastern Ukraine. Over three years of conflict has left her life in limbo but she is determined not to give up on her future. More than 200,000 children affected by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine require urgent and sustained psychosocial support to address the trauma of living through more than three years of violence. Children should not have to live with the emotional scars from a conflict they had no part in creating. Last year, we reached children with psychosocial support through community protection centres, mobile teams and school-based social workers and psychologists, but the need for longer-term care is outpacing available resources.Learn more: http://uni.cf/2nQTOem Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m The official UNICEF YouTube channel is your primary destination for the latest news updates from the frontline, documentaries, celebrity appeals, and more about our work to realize the rights of every child.

Bottle flip to fight climate change | UNICEF
Description: Join us and share your own clip with the hashtag #FlipClimateChange on Twitter or Instagram. Make sure to share your message that "without safe water children cannot survive" to raise awareness about why we must act on climate before it’s too late. The impacts of climate change are being felt around the world. For many children, a change in climate is felt through a change in water. In times of drought or flood, in areas where sea level has risen or ice and snow have unseasonably melted, children are at risk – as the quality and the quantity of the water they rely on is under threat.
