unicef Ali Hassouna holds the hands of his granddaughters, 11-year-old Samar Barakat and 6-year-old Rosol, near the remnants of the residential towers where the girls used to live in #Gaza. The buildings were destroyed in a blast during last year’s hostilities. “There is no future in Gaza for anyone – men, women or children,” Hassouna said. Six months after the ceasefire in #Gaza, children still struggle to recover from the trauma of last summer. UNICEF/NYHQ2015-0248/El Baba @unicefpalestine #UNICEF #Palestine 3d

unicef Neveen Barakat comforts her 6-year-old daughter, Rosol, in the city of Beit Lahia, in the northern #Gaza Strip. Six months after the ceasefire that ended 7 weeks of fighting in #Gaza, Rosol continues to recover from the trauma she experienced. She struggles to cope with the loss of her father, who was killed during a blast that hit a United Nations-run school where her family was sheltering. For Rosol, school is a painful reminder of the violence she experienced during the conflict. UNICEF/NYHQ2015-0247/El Baba @unicefpalestine #UNICEF #Palestine 5d

unicef In #Liberia students perform a dramatization of Sara, Let’s Speak Out, an illustrated book launched by #UNICEF and the Government showing children how they can help prevent and end child rape. The book tells the story of Kema, a Liberian schoolgirl who has been raped by an older man in her community. Kema is reluctant to discuss the incident until a classmate, Sara, reaches out to her. With Sara’s support, Kema tells her teacher, her parents and eventually the local police about the crime, who arrest the perpetrator.The book underscores the importance of communities in changing people’s perspectives on rape, from seeing it as a private matter to seeing it as a criminal offence.

unicef Salah, 9, stands with his sister and cousin on the roof of what remains of their #Gaza home. The house was partially destroyed last summer in a blast that killed his father and uncle as they gathered their belongings. Six months after the ceasefire that ended 7 weeks of intense violence, children like Salah continue to recover from the trauma they experienced. The conflict killed 539 children, injured 2,956 and left many struggling with life-long disabilities. The psychological toll left 425,000 children in need of psychosocial support.

unicef Children attend class at Assassan Catholic School, in Ajumako District, #Ghana. We’re joining efforts to eliminate violent discipline in schools - an accepted practice for generations - and one that persists despite new laws against it. According to a report by Ghana’s Department of Children and Children and Youth in Broadcasting, more than 80% of children have experienced caning (being hit by a cane as punishment) in school. Factors including traditional beliefs, overcrowded classrooms, poverty and personal challenges faced by students as well as teachers contribute to this widespread practice. #UNICEF #Education UNICEF/NYHQ2014-3519/Gordon 6d

unicef #Photooftheweek: Fishermen navigate thick, early morning fog as they journey toward Jhorgoch Haat, a market on Char Jhorgoch, in Chilmari, #Bangladesh. Vendors travel several miles to the market, which is frequented by thousands of local villagers. The market is open two days each week, in the winter, when the Brahamaputra River’s water levels recede to expose the char. Such temporary markets, which change location as chars appear and disappear, are essential to char inhabitants’ way of life. UNICEF/NYHQ2009-2653/Noorani 7d

Recurrent drought, food insecurity and rising food prices, as well as an unresolved border dispute with #Ethiopia, are among the factors that continue to affect the overall health and well-being of children and families in the country. An increase in under-five child #malnutrition rates, poor access to safe drinking water, and regional disparities in sanitation coverage are also of significant concern.
