A mother comforts her child, as he receives a lifesaving vaccine. At least 70,000 people live in Al-Hol camp, Syria, and it’s estimated that more than 90% of them are children and women. Tens of thousands of children are stranded in camps, detention centres and orphanages across Syria, including Al-Hol camp, amid dire humanitarian needs. We’re on the ground, helping to keep children and families safe and healthy but we need more access. #ChildrenUnderAttack © UNICEF/UN0327921/Hawas

Breastfeeding is good for babies - and for business. When employers provide comfortable spaces for feeding and pumping, mothers tend to miss fewer days of work and stay with the company for longer, ultimately delivering a three to one return on the investment. #EarlyMomentsMatter ©UNICEF/UN0255466/Pasquall

Richard is cradling Christ-Vie, 7 months, on the day her mother passed away at an Ebola treatment centre in Butembo, DR Congo. Today, @who declared the Ebola outbreak an emergency of international concern. We fully support this decision. Proportionately, more children are being affected than during any previous outbreak, and it urgently needs the world’s attention and far more resources. We’re on the ground, making sure the protection of children is at the heart of the response. In addition to leading mass information campaigns, we’re protecting school children with handwashing facilities and caring for children orphaned by Ebola. @unicefrdcongo © UNICEF/UN0311499/Tremeau

With limited learning opportunities in the camps, Rohingya refugee children are taking education into their own hands. Mohammad's story, shared by @thomasnybophoto , will inspire you. 👇📚 . . . #regram Two weeks ago while walking through heavy mud on a rainy day in the world’s largest refugee camp, I heard a determined, quiet voice reading English. The story was about a picnic in the park. I followed the voice and found a teenage Rohingya boy named Mohammad sitting in the doorway of his family’s plastic and bamboo shelter. The book was called “Reader 5, Grade 6” and Mohammad had carried it with him from Myanmar when his village was attacked by soldiers. He reads it constantly because in the camp he has nothing but time; and he spends that time, four or five hours a day, practicing his English, sometimes with a local tutor, sometimes by himself in the doorway with his book. I got back to my hotel that night and told my colleagues about this remarkable boy who we needed to buy some books. @laladumonde2018 showed up a few days later with a wrapped package containing three books: a more-advanced English text book; Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist; and Hunger by Knut Hamsun. Today, on my last day in the camp, I walked back through the mud to Mohammad’s tent and told him that I believed in him, and that he inspires me. “This is for you,” I told him, handing him the package. Mohammad took out each book and held it, and ran his hand along the front cover and the spine, and then he turned to me. “Thank you,” he said. I asked him if I could take his picture with his books. Mohammad put on his best shirt, sat down with his new books, and he smiled. #rohingya #refugees #bangladesh #books #paulocoelho #hunger #knuthamsun

Public speaking, copywriting, coding – do you remember how hard it was to learn your most valuable skill? Now imagine that you’re a young person in 2019, and the skills you need keep changing. As the global economy evolves, it’s up to governments and businesses to help young people acquire skills for work and life. This World Youth Skills Day, 15 July, take action by sharing this message far and wide. #WYSD2019 #GenUnlimited ©UNICEF/UN0210214/Noorani

"When I was on the caravan, it was difficult to get my period because there was no privacy but girls would cover each other when we had to manage our menstruation. The walking was hard but I met people from all over with the same goals, and that was a very beautiful thing for me."

This newborn is taking her first look at the world in Niger. The first 1,000 days can shape a child’s future. That’s why the right nutrition, stimulation and care – or eat, play, love – are essential to a baby’s brain development. We have one chance to get it right. @unicefniger #EarlyMomentsMatter

Many children living with albinism are isolated, abused and discriminated against. Lucas and his brother Jordão both have albinism. One day their father Jacinto heard a neighbour forbidding his children to play with them. He patiently explained to her that every child has rights, and asked her to make sure his boys were included in the future. Every child deserves to grow up and learn in a safe environment. Our differences - including nationality, culture, gender, disability, identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, migration status, religion - make us unique and should be celebrated, rather than divide us. #ENDviolence © UNICEF/UN0324917
