UNICEF supports children evacuated from the flooded areas
UNICEF mobilised over 70 volunteer psycho-social workers (mostly psychology students) and trained them, in collaboration with partners, over the weekend in order to be deployed to collective centres. Psycho-social workers conducted initial situation and needs assessments in 14 collective centres, reaching an estimated 700 children. Recreation kits for 20 collective centres have been delivered to facilitate the full programme of workshops/activities with children that will be conduced in two 2 shifts per day. Activities are closely coordinated with the City Secretariat for Social Welfare, and done in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Defence, as well as university faculties, and NGO partners.
