Listen To Children To Help Those Affected By Conflict, Poverty

Devex: What does the future hold for children in conflict zones?
Matt Scott, director for peacebuilding at World Vision

“…Children in war zones today overwhelmingly suffer from the multiple ‘hangovers’ of war: hospitals without medicines, equipment or staff; schools stripped of teachers and supplies; and governments unable to deliver even the most basic needs, like clean water. … [I]f the world is to make progress lifting the world’s most vulnerable children out of poverty tomorrow, we need to start listening to them today. Let’s not leave the world’s conflict-affected children behind” (2/6).
