Protect refugee and migrant children, and those affected by conflict

Every day, refugee children, migrant children and children affected by conflict face unspeakable human rights violations and threats to their safety and well-being – and this in the absence of a pandemic. For many of these girls and boys, access to basic health care and facilities is extremely limited, while cramped living conditions make social distancing unfeasible.

These children, too often hidden from the world's view, must not be forgotten during the COVID-19 response. 2020 was already set to be a year with more people than ever in need of humanitarian assistance, and this pandemic will only compound the vulnerabilities of children in crisis-affected countries.
