UNICEF: Press Conference - Humanitarian Action for Children Appeal (Geneva, 30 January 2018)
30 Jan 2018 -  Launch of UNICEF Humanitarian Action for Children 2018
Around the world, violent conflict is driving humanitarian needs to critical levels, with children especially vulnerable. Conflicts that have endured for years – such as those in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Nigeria, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen, among other countries – continue to deepen in complexity, bringing new waves of violence, displacement and disruption to children’s lives.

UNICEF’s Humanitarian Action for Children sets out the agency’s 2018 appeal, and its goals in providing children with access to safe water, nutrition, education, health and protection in 51 countries across the globe.
