The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a deep impact on children, families, communities, and societies the world over. The coronavirus is tearing children’s lives apart – around 99% of the world’s children have been impacted by disruptions like school closures, stretched health systems, lost livelihoods, and restricted access to nutritious food.
To ensure children’s voices are heard and will be at the centre of any response to this crisis, Save the Children conducted the largest survey among children and their caregivers of its kind since the outbreak of the pandemic, taking in over 25,000 respondents (including 8,000 children) across 37 countries. The findings are captured in our latest report, Protect a Generation: The Impact of COVID-19 on children’s lives.
