UNICEF calls for support for millions of African children

At least 13.5 million uprooted children in Africa � including those living as refugees, migrants or internally displaced � need strengthened national actions, and regional and international cooperation between states to uphold their rights, keep them safe and help them fulfil their potential, said UNICEF.

Ahead of the African Union (AU) Summit which opened in Ethiopia on Sunday, UNICEF urged AU leaders to work together to address the negative drivers of irregular migration and respond to the needs of uprooted children across the continent.
