“Three of my children died because they couldn't get medical treatment.” This is Maurice Muema's story.

Education is not a luxury of peacetime. 📚 School gives a sense of normalcy. 🎒 School opens opportunities in life. 🎓 School can help kids cope with the stress of armed violence.

Families belong together. ❤️ The Central Tracing Agency is at the heart of our efforts to reunite families separated by conflict. Today, we mark its 150th anniversary! #CTA150 

Every minute that this cycle of violence continues is a danger to people's lives, their homes and the services and infrastructure they rely on like hospitals and schools.

Nurses are the world's life-savers. ❤️ They deserve respect. They deserve our thanks. They deserve to be safe . #InternationalNursesDay 

The rules of war are simple. The rules of war preserve our humanity. The rules of war are not suspended during a pandemic.

The pandemic is far from over. Make sure you're still taking care of your mental health today.❤️ #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth 

How many armed conflicts are happening in the world right now?

The rules of war: No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians. No targeting civilians.

If #Yemen  was 100 people: -80 need aid to survive. -60 have barely anything to eat. -58 have no access to clean water. -52 have no access to health care. -11 are severely malnourished. But Yemen is not 100 people. It’s 27 million people.

20 examples of when it's justifiable to torture an enemy combatant: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. Did we miss any? Didn't think so. Torture isn't just unacceptable, it's illegal. #GenevaConventions 

Even during conflict. Even during a pandemic.

Not inevitable. Not acceptable. Not an accident. Sexual violence is a crime, whenever and wherever it takes place. Here’s how we’re trying to prevent it and provide care for survivors.

Nothing stops our trucks from delivering aid in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

In #Yemen , it’s estimated that a child dies every 10 minutes from a preventable illness @UN ).
