Nearly half a million children in Yemen are dangerously malnourished and at risk of death, the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF reported on Tuesday. The figure marks a 200 percent increase from 2014, before conflict erupted in the country.

A host of factors are contributing to the dramatic food insecurity in the country, but aid organizations and analysts tell Devex that the bottom line comes down to logistics. Getting supplies into Yemen and to where they are most needed is a gargantuan task, bogged down by security challenges, fuel shortages and dilapidated infrastructure that has been all but destroyed by a two-year military campaign.

“The primary issue in Yemen is not lack of effort, money, or stuffs. The issue is the logistics of distribution,” said Elana DeLozier, a Yemen specialist and founder of The Sage Institute for Foreign Affairs.  … https://www.devex.com/news/children-face-immediate-risk-of-death-as-famine-looms-in-yemen-89688#

A TV campaign that shows Santa forgetting Christmas after developing dementia has been cleared by the ad watchdog following complaints it was offensive and could distress children.

The festive campaign, called Santa Forgot, was run by the charity Alzheimer’s Research UK to raise awareness of dementia and help boost donations.

The two-minute clip, narrated by Stephen Fry and animated by Aardman, the studio behind Wallace and Gromit, tells the story of a girl called Freya who asks her father about Santa, who no longer delivers presents because he has dementia.

In the ad the girl goes to the North Pole to save Father Christmas, offering support and encouraging his redundant elves to become researchers to find a way to cure the disease…..https://www.theguardian.com/media/2017/feb/15/santa-dementia-alzheimers-research-uk-tv-ad-cleared-asa-distressing-children?utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Media+briefing+2016&utm_term=213531&subid=11463381&CMP=

10 year-old Ansam, born blind, performed at a first ever ‘children’s musical concert’ supported by our partner Awtar in Damascus on UNICEF’s 70th anniversary. Ansam’s family was displaced displaced by fighting from Harasta in Rural Damascus.

With help from UNICEF, she now attends a psychosocial support programme where she learned how to play oud and guitar.

Ansam’s songs are used in UNICEF-supported child friendly centers across Syria to foster emotional development, creativity, and psychosocial wellbeing for children who have been through deeply traumatic experiences.
