Joint statement on protecting children and their families during and after the COVID19 crisis

As partner of the EU Alliance in Investing in Children, Eurochild joins as signatory on statement calling for EU Member States and European Commission to support children and families at risk of poverty

As COVID-19 continues to spread across Europe, it is bringing havoc and devastation to people’s lives, exposing weaknesses of European healthcare systems, and intensifying social inequalities. Although children are considered as a low-risk group, they will be hit hard by this public health crisis. The widening of already existing inequalities means that those who need most support – such as access to adequate healthcare and education – are not receiving it and will struggle most to deal with the catastrophic economic consequences of the pandemic. 

Along with our 20 partners in the EU Alliance for Investing in Children, Eurochild is calling for measures to support children and families in the short and long term.
