Stop a lost generation
Isolated in unsafe homes, sent to work or pushed into early marriage, millions of boys and girls could be facing physical, emotional and sexual abuse as result of the pandemic.
Many children are already suffering and helplines are being overwhelmed with calls.
The effects on these children will last a lifetime. We must prevent this devastating legacy.
Please help us to convince governments and UN agencies to act.
Please call on governments and institutions to urgently increase funding for health, education and other social services that protect children from all forms of violence and abuse, especially for girls and boys at greater risk due to the impacts of COVID-19.
