UNICEF in action
In Honduras, seven out of ten children live in a home classified by UNICEF as below the poverty line. Forty-three percent of children do not live with their parents, because their parents have departed for other nations in search of work.
In Tanandava, a small community in Madagascar's Anosy region, the ravages of climate change and drought are felt particularly hard. Food insecurity is a constant for many. Opportunities for children are often few and far between.
Under the best of circumstances, motherhood can be a lonely business. The sleeplessness and 24-7 demands of a new baby can isolate new moms just when they need the support of others.
