UNICEF is on the ground in Egypt, with a mission to put children and women's rights at the heart of social and development issues. As the dramatic events unfold, we will continue to advocate for children's rights to education, protection and healthcare.

UNICEF is closely watching events in Cairo, where a week-long movement of historic proportions has taken a violent turn.
