UNICEF launches the Bebbo mobile app to help parents care for children during the war
UNICEF Ukraine has launched a free mobile application to support parents or guardians who care for children aged 0 to 6 years.
The first years of a child's life are the most important period of their growth and development. At this time, the foundations of the future are being laid, which will have a determinative impact on their adult life. The war that Ukrainian children have faced can have serious consequences for their development. Therefore, the task for adults is to mitigate this impact and minimize the possible negative consequences of war.
The new Bebbo mobile app aims to help with this. It contains all the necessary materials and tools to help parents monitor the health and development of children from birth to six years. Bebbo also offers tips for parents that they may need during the war - how to support themselves and the child mentally, how to feed a newborn child, how to make a diaper, what you need to know if you have to move within Ukraine or abroad, and so on.
Every day, Bebbo will offer parents useful articles and games that will help kids to overcome the key stages of development. The app also makes it easy to monitor your child's health. For example, you can keep a calendar of vaccinations and monitor basic growth parameters.
The Bebbo mobile app has already helped more than 100,000 parents and carers in 11 countries.
UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. Across more than 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, to build a better world for everyone.
