Visits with our children are always special occasions. The children never fail to move me. The sympathy and gratitude they demonstrate serve as reminders that what really matters is trying to help others as best we can.
For more than 10 years, the World Aid for Children,Inc and its partner working as one team, create positive change for children. We work around the world, making sure children are healthy, nourished, protected and educated. Through our groundbreaking work in child survival, early education and protection, we provide children with a strong foundation for the future. I wish each of you could see for yourself the positive change that children experience because of your support.
Partnerships lead to educational gains as well. Our collaboration with Marc & Meï Company in 1992 allows us to provide more direct assistance to children and their families. Each year, through this special partnership, hundreds of thousands of new pairs of shoes are distributed to children around the world.
In World Aid for Children,Inc, we discover, practice,and enhance our talents and skills. All of these factors work together to give us a good venue to trust our own understanding and to share it with our co-members.
The first and most important priority for a good life is good health. But, there is growing recognition that civilian-targeted warfare and famine constitute two of the greatest public health challenges of our time. Conditions for maintenance of child health deteriorate in War-Refugee children are particularly vulnerable to the deadly combination of malnutrition and infectious illness. There is also interruption of population immunization programs by war which, may be responsible for increases in child mortality. Children are exposed to situations of tragic phenomena, terror and horror during war, experiences that may leave enduring impacts in post traumatic stress disorder. Severe losses and disruptions in their lives lead to high rates of depression and anxiety in war-affected children. These impacts may be prolonged by exposures to further privations and violence in refugee situations. The experience of indifference from the surrounding world,or, worse still,malevolence may cause children to suffer loss of meaning in their construction of themselves in their world. War-affected children may have to change their moral structure and lie, steal,and sell sex to survive. These children may have their moral structure forcibly dismantled and replaced in training to kill as part of a military force.
During the humanitarian response to victims of war, our comprehensive curriculum is designed to mitigate some of the damage done to children and to heal them after they are damaged. So, it, is no coincidence that protection of war-affected children with regard to medical care, food, clothing, medicine and education are the first benefit children receive from the World Aid for Children,Inc. Physical and psychological rehabilitation is instituted to varying degrees depending on the resources available.Sometimes we make an effort to help the psychological impacts of war on children. So, a few of war-affected children have been evaluated. Some efforts at rehabilitation of war-affected children include social healing and education in the culture of peace.
At the same time, in our efforts to make war less damaging for children, we institute measures to secure long lasting peace and prevent violence and conflicts. These measures include the implementation of peace and non-violence program in our global approach of development. We are working specifically to promote a culture of peace, dialogue,cooperation and mutual understanding,through social cohesion and collective creation activities.
In order to mobilize populace into the realization of collective activities to create a social link and a real cohesion inside the community, we organize monthly community meetings to help people to participate in the decision making process concerning their own community development. These meetings are also an opportunity for dialogue between the different socio- economical groups, and the possibility for the most marginalized people to express themselves and communicate with the whole community.
Every day and in times of crisis, we worked to realize result for children in United States and around the world. Action and progress are being made in saving children's lives. Also we are now at an historic point where ending preventable institutionalization of children lies within our grasp. We work with policymakers at the local and global levels, advocating for policy that will give children the best chance for success.
We are not stopping there. Through our child protection program, we include children who were abused, exploited and who lacked appropriate care. Our project run successfully thanks to the support of thousands of people who participate in our cause by generously donating money and products, offering expertise,organising initiatives and events, and spreading our messages. They play a crucial role in helping us fulfill our mission. Our hope is to make war and poverty less damaging for children.
Our mission is to provide a voice for children who cannot speak for themselves , and we supply children with a strong foundation for the future.
It is time for health professionals to define war as a serious global public health problem. This trip has really opened my eyes and shown me the importance of love. Sudan is no place for children,so,we don't have time to waste.
In each conflict, numerous children are killed, wounded,or even exploited. Others are imprisoned,forced to leave their country to survive, or join the armed forces. Many find themselves orphans with no protection. However, any degree of increase in the suffering of children in war impels the world to take into account ways of removing the vector producing the suffering,war itself. We have to take the war out of children.
The civil war in Sudan has a significant impact on the health of children through the destruction of health service infrastructure and resource allocation decisions detrimental to children. Currently, the famine has been associated with excess mortality resulting from starvation and epidemic diseases.
Each year, thousands of children are killed as a direct result of fighting from bullets and bombs, but many more die from malnutrition and disease caused by armed conflict. One of the most immediate effects of armed conflict is the disruption of food supplies. For example, in many countries, landmines prevent the use of agricultural land. Also, household income can have a dramatic effect in reducing malnutrition, especially during periods of crisis where food prices usually rise dramatically. Economic disarray heightens unemployment, reducing people's ability to buy food.
Malnutrition can affect all children, but it causes the greatest mortality and morbidity among young children. Also, children suffer a range of war injuries. Certain weapons, such as landmines, are more likely to kill or seriously injure children. Thousands of children suffer landmine injuries each year. Other millions of children are wounded, mutilated, or become handicapped as a result of the atrocities that they have had to live through.
In addition, the family is essential to children's care, and protection is an important social, economic and cultural factor in child development. But during armed conflicts, a large number of children find themselves orphans after the death of their parents. Being so vulnerable and having an underdeveloped sense of danger, they accept any kind of work. Prostitution becomes a ways to survive because the activity is extremely profitable compared to other forms of degrading work. Other children are forced to become soldiers and sent into battle,or sent in the first wave to draw the enemy's fire. Because they are living in a difficult situation, children see these jobs as away to resolve their problems.
Other consequences can be added to this list. Children also need to have access to education and thus be able to go to school. But unfortunately, their schools and communities are torn apart by war. Also,the loss of sources of income and means of subsistence, such as the loss of land,can directly lead to reduced access to education, thereby creating a sense of precariousness i displaced individuals.
Armed conflict is a major problem causes large scale damage to children. So, when armed conflict kills and cripples more children than soldiers, the world has a special obligation to speak out. I mean war itself must be prevented.
To conclude, here I will consider ways to prevent wars. To secure long lasting peace and prevent violence and conflict in the world, all sectors of society must come together to examine ways of removing the vector producing wars. In this way,they must implement peace and non-violence in their global approach to development efforts. Some of the substructure of cooperation and mutual understanding, through social cohesion and collective creation activities ,can be laid in schools. All possible efforts should be made to undertake peace education in schools. Both the content and the process of education should promote peace, social justice, respect for human rights and the acceptance of responsibility. To achieve these goals, children need to learn the skills of negotiation,problem solving,critical thinking and communication that will enable them to resolve conflicts without resorting to violence.
