Children and adolescents in emergencies
The pandemic has seriously affected education, protection and survival of children. Children and adolescents have stopped go to school and, with that, lost protection and learning spaces. Many of them experience violence at home or in their community and do not know how to report it. The crisis has affected family economies, hitting hard on the nutrition of the most vulnerable children. The development of an entire generation is at risk.
Save the Children seeks to protect children and their communities from the negative impacts of COVID-19, which is why it started in 2020 an integrated response to limit the virus transmission, promote health and access to education, as wells as ensure information to prevent and attend violence.
