Childhood in War - Right to education, health, identity in Ukraine
Eurochild member Polina Klykova publishes a second brochure on the impact of war on children’s rights in Ukraine
This publication is the second one in a series of combined notes about childhood during the war. While the first brochure focused on child protection and reported violations of children’s rights, the second one discloses the impact of war on children's rights to education, health, and identity. It is based on the gathering of statistics and cases from open sources, official data, and private stories and is part of the childrenrights.info initiative run by Polina.
The publication features stories and explanations of the obstacles in the educational process for pupils who stay in the territory of Ukraine and abroad, the military use of schools, the restricted access to healthcare and medicines, the Russian attacks against the humanitarian aid and the long term effects of traumatic experiences.
