Our future depends on children and young people. Listening to their voices will help us reimagine a better tomorrow.
Today, and every day, we are supporting them to lift their voices and claim their rights.
It's always so inspiring to hear from children and young people! On #WorldChildrensDay, I call on everyone, especially duty-bearers and decision-makers, to listen to them and commit to acting on their concerns.
First batch of emergency life-saving supplies are now being delivered to #Catanduanes for our typhoon #RollyPH response. Water containers, water purification/disinfectant solution, and hygiene + dignity kits will help keep affected children and families healthy. #WASH
UNICEF together with Humanitarian Country Team members are in #Catanduanes now. We're assessing the impact of typhoon #RollyPH/ #Goni and planning the emergency response with the local government to address the needs of affected communities.
Pre-emptive evacuation and improving disaster readiness has saved many lives in the Philippines. Team @unicefphils stands ready for lifesaving emergency support, while we continue our work with gov't, communities and children on disaster risk reduction and emergency preparedness.
The #RollyPH emergency assessment team in Bato and Baras, #Catanduanes, talking to residents and local officials and surveying damage + needs. UNICEF is leading/co-leading Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH), Child Protection, Nutrition and Education emergency clusters.
.@unicefphils and partners are now on the ground to assess the impact of #RollyPH. Many concerns for children in the most affected communities: access to water and sanitation, damaged schools, disrupted health services, psychosocial support, risk of malnutrition, #COVID19 risks.
Deeply concerned about the estimated 724,000 children in areas affected by typhoon #RollyPH. Team @unicefphils is working with the Philippine government, @UNPhilippines and partners to assess the needs of children and families. We stand ready to provide life-saving support. #Goni
#COVID19 increases children’s risk to be exposed to online sexual abuse and exploitation. We at @unicefphils call on everyone to do their part to #BeatOSAEC and end this heinous crime.

I visited the PICC Mega Ligtas quarantine facility with Japan Ambassador Mr. Koji Haneda, @SecDuque, @PNPPIO officials and @unicefphils colleagues. A great example of PH government, development partners and civil society working together to #BeatCOVID19. 🇵🇭
I am pleased to have signed the MoU between UNICEF and @zambocitygovt for 2019-2023 with Mayor @beng_climaco. Zamboanga City is a priority Local Government Unit for @unicefphils. Together, we look forward to delivering effective and sustained results for children.
A most amazing experience as UNICEF ambassador happened today in BARMM (Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao). To see people united in wanting to improve their region was truly inspiring. Peace now reigns but education needs a lot of help. Hoping to do more for them🙏🏼
Thank you to @unicefphils National Ambassador @GaryValenciano1 for visiting children in BARMM and advocating for their rights. You brought joy, energy and inspiration to children, communities, officials and our hardworking UNICEF Mindanao field office team.
