Protect Vulnerable Children
Coronavirus knows no borders.
It is a global threat and demands a global response. The virus is already having devastating consequences for children.
With the pandemic now spreading into some of the world’s poorest countries, there is a real danger that progress made on improving children’s lives will see a reversal, especially for girls and children affected by conflict.
We must act now to help protect these vulnerable children.
SCAN and its supporters are advocating Congress to provide robust funding for the COVID-19 international response.
We are pushing for the funding to include significant resources for emergency global health activities, humanitarian assistance, and flexible resources to respond to address immediate, large-scale emergencies.
COVID is causing immense suffering among kids in desperate circumstances around the world. Tell Congress to increase funding for humanitarian assistance!
We mark this Inauguration Day, a day of transition in leadership, with the knowledge that the President of the United States can and must play a critical role in making the world a better place for children.
SCAN spoke with 4 child care professionals about their experience during COVID-19 and the challenges they’ve faced. Here are their stories.
Children around the world have big dreams. But now they are facing an enormous hurdle to achieve their dreams: the COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic has disrupted every part of life. But for girls in particular, there’s even more at stake.
