Thirty million children displaced by conflict need protection now and sustainable long-term solutions
UNICEF is urging world leaders to redouble efforts to secure the rights, safety and wellbeing of the world’s most vulnerable children – so many of whom remain displaced by conflict and political instability.
The monsoon rains falling on the Rohingya refugee camps near Cox’s Bazar have caused more than 130 landslides, damaged 3,300 shelters and affected 28,000 refugees, Oxfam said.
More than 5,600 people have reached Bosnia and Herzegovina since January, compared with just 754 across 2017. "The scale and complexity of this operation is such that more assistance is needed,” says the Red Cross.
With houses and villages destroyed, schools and healthcare centres unstaffed, and fear of more conflict, many Pool residents remain displaced or have returned to poverty.
