UNICEF: Some four million Iraqi children in need

13.02.2018 08:02 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of yesterday, while commenting on a major conference on Iraq rebuilding (to be launched today within neighbouring Kuwait), Geert Cappaelaere, UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, said about a quarter of all Iraqi children are living in poverty, and in the wake of more than four years of violence, families are being pushed to «extreme measures» in order to survive, UN Radio reports. «Children are Iraqs future,» he said. «The Kuwait Conference for Iraq this week is an opportunity for world leaders to show that we are willing to invest into children — and through investing in children, that we are willing to invest in rebuilding a stable Iraq,» he said. It is to be admitted, the joint UNICEF and The UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) assessment entitled Committing to Change — Securing the Future (which is to be presented at the conference) concludes that without investment to restore infrastructure and services in war-ravaged cities such as Mosul, the «hard-won gains to end conflict in Iraq are in jeopardy.» So, the UN agencies are going to appeal at the conference — which runs within this year Feb 13–14 — for commitments to restore basic infrastructure and services for children, including psycho-social support. It is to be admitted, a UN Spokesman told that Secretary-General António Guterres will attend the Conference and is expected to urge the international community to support the Iraq reconstruction.
