Protect Vulnerable Children
Coronavirus knows no borders.
It is a global threat and demands a global response. The virus is already having devastating consequences for children.
With the pandemic now spreading into some of the world’s poorest countries, there is a real danger that progress made on improving children’s lives will see a reversal, especially for girls and children affected by conflict.
We must act now to help protect these vulnerable children.

COVID is causing immense suffering among kids in desperate circumstances around the world. Tell Congress to increase funding for humanitarian assistance!
COVID has been devastating for children around the world. But we can help protect those children and their families by urging Congress to act.
Today, one of the toughest place in the world to be a girl is in West and Central Africa. We must advocate with them for change.
