COVID-19 continues to have a profound impact on children, families, and communities across the world. While children may not have been affected by disease as much as adults, the indirect effects and impacts pose a clear and present danger, particularly to those most vulnerable. The combination of the movement restrictions, closure of schools, and loss of livelihoods has created a perfect storm that increases the risk of children experiencing physical, emotional and sexual violence, both now and in the months and years to come.https://mcusercontent.com/a61a0bef2a672df3decbca8d6/images/a2678854-3e1f-40a5-8f17-286b8248e680.png" width="280" class="CToWUd" />
In this webinar, Tamara Tutnjevic Gorman and Bill Forbes from World Vision International will present findings from the agency’s recent report, COVID-19 Aftershocks: A Perfect Storm, and discuss projections and the latest data collected on the impact of COVID on violence against children. They will also share examples of the World Vision child protection response and offer some practical lessons on implementing interventions during the pandemic.
