Fact Sheet - Child Protection in Emergencies

Save the Children’s Child Protection Initiative (CPI) fact sheet about "Child Protection in Emergencies" looks at the the main protection dangers that children face in an emergency and how to address them. During emergencies, children run many risks. They are at risk of being separated from their families or other caregivers, of being recruited into armed forces or groups, economically exploited and sexually abused. Children have a right to protection from all kinds of violence in all kinds of emergencies.
