In South Sudan, Bhang (in white football jersey), 15, supports his younger siblings (from left) Nyagoa, Kerwan and Nyalat. They have not seen their mother for two years. The children were separated from their mother when their home was attacked. They had to carry Kerwan, now 10, who uses a wheelchair.

 

CHILD PROTECTION

 

Including Children with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action: Child protection is designed for UNICEF field staff – including protection humanitarian field officers, coordinators, specialist and advisors – as well as UNICEF’s partners and others involved in humanitarian work. It provides practical tips and offers entry points for making sure that child protection in emergencies takes children with disabilities into account.

 

All staff can play an active role in ensuring that children with disabilities are included in child protection interventions within humanitarian contexts!
