A cold wave with temperatures that fell to -27 degrees is affecting Eastern #Europe. The first victims are the #refugees fleeing their country on the Balkan route. Many of them are children. They need emergency help and protection: www.tdh.ch/en/nous-soutenir/donner/urgence?urgence=19244

It is unacceptable to leave children without proper assistance and protection – even when they stay outside of the official facilities!

In Belgrade City, we have set up a dedicated space for children and mothers where we organise recreational activities for children, offer emergency counseling and legal advice to anyone who needs it, and distribute basic necessities including hygiene and baby items.

Restorative juvenile justice is not about letting young offenders out of prison without punishment. Young people must take responsibility for their actions in order to become part of society again.

Lauriane Sallin, Miss Switzerland, realised the importance of this concept while visiting several projects of Tdh in Brazil – including a prison for girls.

We are proud to present #IeDA, our innovative technology which helps us improve children's health care in West Africa.

Our technology uses an online form on tablets and mobile app to guide nurses diagnosing children and records the medical data in the application. By systematizing these tasks, we have reduced the margin for error and tremendously improved diagnosis quality.

On our special page, you will find photos, videos and detailed information on IeDA and on the children and families we help.

We thank our partners +Dimagi Inc, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, University Research Co., LLC (URC), Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, the Novartis Foundation and +UNICEF for their support.

The recommendations focus on the urgent need to include human rights provisions in the IOC’s processes. For more information:

Since last April’s powerful earthquake, Ecuador experiences several aftershocks a day. The already affected families live in fear. Every aftershock brings back old memories of the earthquake.

“It’s historic” said David Naville, Tdh’s delegation head in Colombia. After 52 years of armed conflict, the Colombian government and the FARC rebel group have signed a peace agreement.

For five years, Tdh has worked south of Cordoba, in an area affected by the conflict. Among the demobilised fighters, there are children, who have special needs.

In Bangladesh, more than half of women are married before the age of 18. Child marriage can have serious consequences and may lead to dropping out of school, health issues and abuse.

To fight against early marriage, we work with people like Proma who was herself married very young.

At Terre des hommes, we think that all children deserve to be heard. Listen to them and share their voices!

Naomy is 12 and lives in a favela in #Brazil. She saw everything she loved being ripped apart to make way for the 2016 Olympic Park. She tells us her own version of the #Olympic Games.

We achieved a major first! Terre des hommes, in coordination with the Department of Health in Egypt, organised a medical campaign for children from the detention centre in Assiut to access free medical care in the frame of our justice project for minors.
