Responding to COVID-19 and protecting children in Africa and Haiti
Millions of children around the world — particularly children from impoverished families and children who are on the move, displaced by conflict or the effects of climate change — are at risk of trafficking, violence and exploitation. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated all of these risks.
For World Children's Day 2021, DST and UNICEF USA teamed up for a social action campaign in support of UNICEF's emergency response in Haiti.
