Meet a super dad at a refugee camp I UNICEF
Description: This South Sudanese dad is making a refugee camp in Uganda feel like home. Idro fled the conflict in 2016 with his wife and three children. “Dad, I want us to go home.” His baby girl used to tell him. Even though she was very young, his children could sense the camp wasn’t home - so Idro built one for them. “I remember my dad used to be a rude one… So I do not want to do it the same way.” Idro explains. “I and their mother, we’re at least trying to give them the best we can give them.” The conditions may be bad but Idro sings and plays with his children, feeds them and protects them - he showers them with love and attention. Nutritious food, love, play and protection in the early years shape children’s brain development for life. This year, we’re celebrating all the super dads who make #EarlyMomentsMatter.

The World Bank Group: Tackling Fragility, Conflict and Violence
Description: Addressing the global challenge of fragility, conflict and violence is key to ending poverty and promoting shared prosperity. Fragility affects countries at all income levels, and risks such as climate change and natural disasters can further destabilize communities. To tackle this complex landscape, the WBG is taking a broader approach to fragility by focusing on prevention, and engaging during active conflict, transition and recovery. Humanitarian-development-peace partnerships are critical to success. Know more: Fragility, Conflict and Violence at the World Bank State and Peacebuilding Fund The Humanitarian-Development-Peace Initiative *** TRANSCRIPT Fragility used to be seen as a low-income problem. Today, we know that it affects countries at all income levels. Climate change, natural disasters and other risks combine to cause more instability. The ongoing famine is a tragic example. The World Bank Group is responding, because extreme poverty is linked. By 2030, 60% of the global poor will live in conflict-affected areas. To tackle fragility, humanitarian-development partnerships are critical. Filippo Grandi, Secretary General, UNHCR: The World Bank brings extraordinary analytical capacity and the longer-term outlook that allows for proper investments in areas, like education, and livelihoods, and, also, support to communities hosting large numbers of refugees and displaced. The Bank is focusing on preventing violent conflict. During conflict, the Bank will remain engaged, and help countries through transition and recovery. In Yemen, the Bank is working with UN partners to keep up critical services like vaccinations for children. Creating jobs is helping communities. Ali Shoqi Qasem Al-Shami, Shopkeeper, Al-Amsha Market, Al-Shaghadera, Yemen: I sell food, commodities spices, etc. The road before was like a swamp. Then when the organization came, the road was paved. Now it is a clean road. In the Central African Republic, Bank support for the country’s transition has had transformational impact. Faustin Archange Touadéra, President of the Central African Republic: Thanks to considerable investment undertaken by the international community, friendly countries and other institutions, in addition to the World Bank, we are emerging [from the crisis]. Gender-based violence is an important focus of prevention. Empowering women economically helps build peace. The Global Crisis Response Platform is strengthening the Bank’s response for both low- and middle-income countries. Sonia Khouri, Director of RACE program, Lebanon Ministry of Education: “We still have many out-of-school children who we will be trying to reach. We need to provide them access to schools and to a high-quality education.” Arwa Aboud, Syrian Student, Lebanon: My name is Arwa Khaled Al Aboud, I am 11 years old. I’m from Syria, the province of Hama. I have been in Lebanon for 4.5 years, and in school for 3 years. This is the frontier of development. The Bank and the global community can make a real difference, to build a more stable world with opportunities for all. Their futures depend on it.
