Statement by UNICEF’s Executive Director on ongoing situation in southern Kyrgyzstan

The political situation in southern Kyrgyzstan has calmed down. But life for Kyrgyzstan’s children has not. As their stories vanish from the front page, we risk putting their safety on the back burner.

We cannot allow that to happen for the 100,000 children displaced by violence. We cannot allow that to happen for the 400,000 children who need to start school in September and yet find their schools damaged or destroyed.

Right now, UNICEF has raised about 40 per cent of the approximately $11.8 million these children need. To date, UNICEF has airlifted some 200 metric tonnes of UNICEF supplies into the region, provided water and sanitation kits to internally-displaced families and given essential material and child health materials to health care facilities.
