May 25, 2021

In humanitarian emergencies, children with disabilities are among those most at risk. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, UNICEF and Special Olympics have worked to protect the rights of children with disabilities and meet their needs — and their families'.

 

UNICEF supported and shared Special Olympics Jamaica's inclusive tips to help children and young people with disabilities stay healthy during the pandemic. Easy to download and share, they cover everything from the importance of eating healthfully and regular check-ups to measures all kids can take to stop the spread of COVID-19.
