Consequences of the armed conflict on children

This past week UNICEF had international children armed conflict Dayton support children victims of aggression or war, we are far form the world objective of a normal life and peace for every single human being on the planet, but a lot of us can say that we keep a pretty calm and normal life, well I tell you that not all people have it as easy as some of us, and we usually forget that in countries like Syria, Venezuela, Uganda, Afghanistan, ad some others in which some wars and fights are constant where the countries population is affected everyday. Now let’s think, if us as adults are usually concerned and scared of the idea of a war or conflict. How can our children survive to some of this situations?

UNICEF executive director Henrietta H. Fore tells us how children need peace and protection at all times. The rules of war prohibit the unlawful targeting of civilians, attacks on schools or hospitals, the use, recruitment and unlawful detention of children, and the denial of humanitarian assistance. When conflicts break out, these rules need to be respected and those who break them need to be held to account. Enough is enough. Stop attacks on children.Adults wars doesnt mean we have to drag innocent children through the mud.

I’m going to tell you where this day is born, it was August 19, 1982, it was called an emergency session by the UnitedNations since they found more than 200,000 Palestine and Lebanese victims, innocent children from a conflict with Israel. The United Nations opted for establishing 4th of June as a day to help all children victims innocent of all the repercussions war has had over the past years. The purpose of this day is recognizing the pain that children throughout the world have had to endure through these physical, mental and emotional situations. This day is part of the United Nations commitment toprotecting children’s rights.

Here we leave the link so that they can see the action that is taking the United Nations, so that we keep in mind the wars that are active around the world as well as ways in which we can help end the victims of aggression.

As of 7 May 2019, The escalating hostilities in northwest Syria has forced a reported 150,000 people to leave their homes to flee violence in Aleppo and Idlib governorates during the past two weeks. Since 20th April, at least 12 children have been reportedly killed in northwestern Syria as violence in northwest Syria continues to escalate. Health facilities and schools have also been reportedly hit over the past weeks. The fighting has also forced UNICEF partners in northern Hama and southern Idlib to halt programmes providing safe water, adequate sanitation and hygiene to affected communities in those areas. Further north, families are fleeing towards the already crowded camps hosting internally displaced people near the Turkish border. In Atmeh, hundreds of families who have not found shelter in the IDP camps are staying in nearby olive groves.
