On June 18 UNICEF’s Executive Director Anthony Lake raised the Iraq emergency response to Level 3, the highest internal designation. Iraq joins Syria, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic – all conflict emergencies – at Level 3. Children, of course, did not cause these conflicts, yet they are usually the most hurt by the violence, disruption of education, and the spread of disease in camps for displaced people.
Please help get the word out about children suffering as a result of the conflict and UNICEF’s response!
And Congratulations to Lucy Meyer! She is the spokesperson for Children with disabilities and has raised an incredible amount of money on her own and has spoken so eloquently on behalf of children around the world with disabilities.
