4. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, United Nations:
“In Mexico, the UN Children’s Fund has warned that many children traveling with the migrant caravan are showing signs of anguish and psychosocial distress. In certain cases, children are expressing fear of violence and separation from their families, while other children are finding it difficult to engage in play, recreational activities, or organized activities by UNICEF staff on the ground. The agency and its partners are quickly scaling up support for psychosocial intervention to reach the children in need. Psychosocial support can help lower the impact on children of having to abandon their homes and endure gruelling travel conditions.”
