COVID-19 support for refugee and migrant children in Italy

Contributed by a member of the RISE Community • April 9th, 2020

On television we see health workers in dramatic situations every day, trying desperately to cope within a strained health system. We hear the stories of people whose relatives have died, mostly elderly family members. In Italy, the elderly are pillars of society, for adults and children. The devastation we are seeing and experiencing is unprecedented for my generation, but I am conscious that I have a lot to be thankful for. Every day, I see UNICEF’s support of refugee and migrant children in Italy during the COVID 19 emergency, including adjusting to this new reality.
