STORYLINE
As the crisis in Tigray has entered its fifth month, with no clear end in sight, UNICEF says concerns about the harm this crisis will cause to children, are now being realized.

More than one million people have been displaced, and fighting continues. Access and security remain serious issues.

According to UNICEF, what is emerging is a disturbing picture of severe and ongoing child rights violations, constituting a protection, education and nutrition emergency.

UNICEF reported destruction to the systems and essential services which children rely on.

1.4 million children have been out of school for more than a full year (since March 2020).

According to assessments, violence and looting have left a majority of health care facilities in the region not functioning, that means 25 out of 40 hospitals and 183 out of 224 primary health care centres.

This year, from 1 Jan to 16 April, one health centre has averaged three cases of reported gender-based violence per day.

UNICEF is leading on efforts to rehabilitate damaged water schemes, supply of water through trucking, and the provision of hygiene supplies. Through these efforts, more than 640,000 people have received safe water for personal use.
