(A World at School) – The international community is neglecting millions of vulnerable babies and young children affected by conflicts and disasters, a shocking report by children’s charity Theirworld warns today. They will suffer from psychological trauma, toxic stress and poor brain development unless their needs are prioritised in humanitarian response plans. The failure to plan for and finance early childhood development services in emergencies – ensuring “safe spaces” for all children – could have lifelong detrimental effects, according to Theirworld.
