unicef #PhotooftheWeek: When the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit #Nepal on 25 April, survival was not the only concern for 17-year-old Rojina (centre). She had just gone into labour and would give birth to her son that day. Now nicknamed Bhukampa Bahadur (meaning ‘earthquake brave’), the 3-month-old boy is a symbol of hope for villagers. “They come here every day just to see him, hoping that he brings good luck to them,” Rojina says. #UNICEF #NepalEarthquake UNICEF/UNI189493/Panday 4h

unicef Isaac, a 15-year-old refugee from #Nigeria, shows the drawing he made during an art activity in a #UNICEF child-friendly space in #Chad’s Dar es Salam camp. “I just got this bicycle as a present from my father to go to school. Two months after, we had to run away from Baga and leave it behind,” he said. The camp’s child-friendly space provides a safe place where children like Isaac can play, learn, cope with their experiences and begin to regain a sense of normalcy. #UNICEF UNICEF/NYHQ2015-1321/Cherkaoui 4d

unicef In Aleppo, #Syria, water cuts amid an intense summer heat wave are threatening children’s lives. Some neighbourhoods have been without running water for nearly three weeks, leaving hundreds of thousands of children thirsty, dehydrated and vulnerable to disease. To address the crisis we’re now delivering 2.5 million litres of water a day, the largest volume since the start of the conflict. Pictured: A boy carries a jerrycan he just filled with water in the Tishreen camp for displaced persons in Aleppo last year. #UNICEF #childrenofSyria UNICEF/NYHQ2014-3061/Rashidi 5d

unicef Nuni Mohamed Rashid holds her surviving twin, Mohammed, at the Mwembeladu Maternity Home in Zanzibar, #Tanzania. When Nuni arrived at the hospital she was already in labour and had to give birth outside. Her first baby died, but she realised she was pregnant with twins and the doctors were able to deliver Mohammed safely. Nuni is using ‘kangaroo care’, an intervention where mothers with no access to incubators hold their preterm babies constantly against their skin to keep them warm. #UNICEF UNICEF/UNI161864/Holt 5d

unicef “I like to beautify my neighborhood with graffiti art. The last war has left us with many destroyed houses which have become eyesores; my art helps to bring some life to these surroundings. I also love to sing rap music. I believe that both rap and graffiti are universal languages, through which I can reach out to the whole world. While it annoys me when people paint over my art, it does not stop me from doing what I love to do. When I finish high school I would like to study interior design, hopefully outside Gaza, to compliment my graffiti.” Mu’ness, 17, from #Gaza. @unicefpalestine is sharing daily portraits of children in Gaza for 51 days to mark a year since the 51 day conflict of 2014. #UNICEF #Palestine #51days51children‬ UNICEF/UNI189363/El Baba 5d

unicef “On the third day of Eid, I saw some children playing on a ferris wheel set up near my house and I heard them singing and shouting as it was rotating; I rushed to join them. When I was up in the air I saw my destroyed house which was hit by an airstrike. Some of the children were asking whose house that was. I did not say it was mine; I just kept playing and enjoying my time. My Eideyah (Eid allowance) was 15 NIS (3 USD) this year; I spent 4 on the swing and with the rest I am going to buy a little doll so I can put her between my arms when I go to sleep every night.” Nora, 10, from #Gaza. @unicefpalestine is sharing daily portraits of children in Gaza for 51 days to mark a year since the 51 day conflict of 2014.‪ #UNICEF #Palestine #‎51days51children‬ 6d
