Migrant and displaced children in the age of COVID-19: How the pandemic is impacting them and what can we do to help

Collaboration and unity are needed more than ever to ensure health, safety, and protection for all, especially for those in the most vulnerable of circumstances. Around the world, millions of migrant and displaced children on nearly every continent are already facing acute deprivations that will upend their growth and development as they mature into adults. COVID-19 presents even greater challenges and threatens to disrupt their lives even further. Protecting these children’s well-being today is the best way to invest in their future and restore hope for a calmer path ahead.
