Necessitating a new kind of alignment, Prince Abdulaziz Bin Talal Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud celebrates activism geared towards child development. With repercussions impacting each and every future, the pandemic acts as a tragedy to all children, but most especially to those most vulnerable.
With 1.8 billion children having lived under household isolation, progress towards the development of children has been substantially delayed. Between 42 and 66 million children will fall to poverty, creating social consequences greater than any other effects.
The largest number of displaced children are from the Arab region, and there are 15 million working children. This greatly harms the health and safety of all children, encouraging greater initiatives to protect our youth.
