Mosul's children haunted by constant fear and intense sorrow a year after the city was retaken from ISIS
Extreme mental distress of parents has left children with nowhere to turn for help
A year since ISIS was expelled from Mosul, the city's children are living in near constant fear for their lives, and are often reliving memories of devastation, displacement, bombing and extreme violence, a new report from Save the Children reveals.
While we can’t stop most hazards from happening, we can stop hazards leading to disasters and we can reduce the deaths and suffering hazards cause.

Ebola and flu outbreaks, increasing number of water borne and vector borne diseases in post flood and storm settings also remind us that people’s health is often the first casualty in a disaster.
