With millions of migrant children on the move worldwide—many of whom have fled crippling poverty, violence, human rights abuses and disasters only to risk exploitation, abuse, trafficking, detention, deportation or even death—Save the Children is urging world leaders meeting at a UN conference in Marrakech today to seize this historic opportunity and adopt the Global Compact on Migration.
Following a night of violence in Gaza and Israel, Save the Children is calling for an immediate end to the hostilities on both sides, to prevent any further suffering of children and their families. Our Senior Programme Officer and spokesperson, Maher Abdullah, has shared his family’s experience overnight in Gaza.
