Isolate don’t Abandon- Helping Children Cope with the COVID-19 crisis

Update: 17-April-2020

The COVID-19 crisis is adversely impacting the well-being of children. The impact is most acute on children belonging to the most marginalised and vulnerable sections of the society who are already facing huge challenges in terms of income, food security and health risk, due to the near impossibility of practicing social distancing in the houses and localities they live in. Children will be exposed to various vulnerabilities and risks when it comes to their protection, nutrition, health and education. These are difficult times, and children, especially girls, will need special care and protection. The safety and protection of the girl child could be severely compromised.
