Children face an increased risk of experiencing sexual violence in conflict. Especially if they are unaccompanied, detained, or recruited by armed forces or armed groups. Sexual violence jeopardizes their childhood and physical & mental health. #16days

No airplane. No boat. No road access. Reaching people in need on the remote islands in #CaboDelgado, #Mozambique is a challenge.

It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing. It doesn’t matter what your gender is. It doesn’t matter what side of the conflict you’re on. It doesn’t matter who your family are. It doesn’t matter if you’re a soldier or a civilian. Sexual violence is never the survivor's fault. #16Days

Of the 25 countries deemed most vulnerable to climate change, 14 are also experiencing conflict. Why is this important? Violence affects their capacity to cope with: 🌊 Floods 🚱 Droughts 🔆 Extreme heat 🏜️ Degraded environment Meaning people living there suffer most.

ICRC retweeted
This is not just a sport for them. Wheelchair Basketball takes these players far beyond the court. It's a chance for them to meet new people, broaden their social life and keep fit at the same time. 7 Paralympic teams received sport wheelchairs from the @ICRC this year.🧑🏽‍🦽

ICRC inaugurated an obstetrics triage area for female patients seeking maternity services at Mirwais regional hospital in #Kandahar. The new triage area will help medical staff to do a quick screening of patients to determine the next level of care.

“A phone call may sound like a simple thing, but it's really a valuable service. A phone call, a contact, can sometimes save a life." Like Marco Antonio Navarro, many #migrants are looking for a way to contact their loved ones. And the @CICV_br helps to reconnect with them 🥰

We recorded nearly 1,360 attacks against medical personnel in Africa between 2016 and 2020. But that number is likely understated. We keep insisting: Health workers are #NotTarget. They must be respected and protected. #HumanitarianAccess
