UNICEF OutRight

We have signed up to UNICEF's OutRight Week of action 2015.

In any humanitarian crisis it is the most vulnerable members of society who are hardest hit. In these situations, some of the most vulnerable victims are children and as a result children’s rights are often compromised and violated.

One in every ten of the world’s children now lives in conflict-affected areas (an estimated 230 million children)*  Last year, children made up half or more of those affected by natural disasters (some 50 million children)* Never before has the world responded to so many crises at once. This year alone, children have been aected by devastating earthquakes in Nepal, the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and by conflicts raging on three continents. Meanwhile, long-term crises in Syria, South Sudan, Iraq and Yemen have trapped children in emergencies of the severest and largest scale.

We have had an assembly from the UNICEF resources and following discussions around the topic of rights for children throughout the world, we are writing to Prime Minister David Cameron, encouraging him to voice our concerns at the Humanitarian Summit in 2016.
