As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe, UNICEF has large concerns about the safety, physical and mental wellbeing of children affected by the school closures and other lockdown measures. Although it seems that children are less at risk of contracting the virus, the direct and indirect consequences of this worldwide pandemic have a huge impact on their present and future safety and well-being.
As child protection professionals, we know you share our concerns. On this page, UNICEF Netherlands will share and keep updating important information and resources as well as useful tools and advice to help you keep children safe.
The information and many of the links below are taken from the global CP AoR Child Protection Resource Menu for COVID-19.
