Invisible Wounds

Invisible Wounds
Date: 07/03/2017

Category: Child protection, Education, Health, Emergencies

For the past six years, children in Syria have been bombed and starved. They have seen their friends and families die before their eyes or buried under the rubble of their homes. They have watched their schools and hospitals destroyed, been denied food, medicine and vital aid, and been torn apart from their families and friends as they flee the fighting. Every year that the war goes on plumbs new, previously unimaginable depths of violence against children, and violations of international law by all sides.

Tropical Cyclone Winston was one of the most unforgiving disasters to ever hit Fiji. Here in Suva, we waited helplessly as some of Fiji's most vulnerable families bore the brunt of the storm.

Education Disrupted - Summary

Education Disrupted Report
Date: 26/05/2016

Category: Child protection, Education, Disaster risk reduction, Emergencies

Each year disasters have a major impact on children, youth and education systems. In the disaster-prone region of the Asia Pacific, around 200 million children per year will have their lives severely disrupted by disasters in the coming decades. Every child has a right to a quality education, yet across the region many children are unable to realise this right due to the impact of these disasters. Being unable to realise this right puts children at risk of exploitation and violence, and contributes towards a lack of economic participation. This report profiles five specific events that struck the Asia-Pacific region in 2015 – some of large disasters, while others are recurring disasters that force children out of school on an annual or semi-annual basis.

2016 State of Australia's Mothers Report

Date: 08/05/2016

However, national-level results mask major differences within Australia. This report looks behind national averages and compares the situation for mothers and their children at both the State and Local level. State-wide comparisons provide a deeper insight, but delving even further to the local level is most illuminating for understanding the varied experience of mothers across Australia.
