22-year-old Nadu just gave birth to a baby girl in a #UNICEF-supported displacement camp in Juba, #SouthSudan. "I am very happy because she was delivered peacefully. In the future, I want her to go to school," she says. In South Sudan, #newborn children and #mothers face enormous risks due to a shortage of trained health workers and a lack of essential medicines and equipment. 📸: @unicefssudan

This pupil from St. Luke’s Primary in Pointe Michel, #Dominica has every reason to smile — he's finally back in school! Though Hurricane Maria destroyed or damaged most school buildings last year, the education system has largely returned to normal, and 90% of kids are now back in class. UNICEF and partners provided tents for temporary learning spaces, early childhood education kits and School-in-a-Box kits. 📸: @uniceflac

A #PeaceDay Wish: “My dream is to become a physiotherapist to help children like me. And my big dream is for #peace to return to my country," says Hanaa, 8, who was paralyzed by an exploding bomb in Aleppo, #Syria. For months after her injury, Hanaa did not want to leave her home. Then, volunteers brought her to a UNICEF-supported Child Friendly Space, where she can play, sing, and draw. #InternationalDayOfPeace 📸: @unicef_mena

This is a children's crisis. In #Yemen, a child suffering from malnutrition waits to receive treatment at a #UNICEF-supported hospital in Sana'a. The conflict in Yemen has taken a devastating toll on #children. Nearly every child across the country needs help getting food, treatment, education, water and sanitation. Check out our profile link to learn how you can help. #YemenChildren #ChildrenUnderAttack 📸: @unicef_yemen

We first met Nadeisha, 14, and her grandmother, Elsa, not long after #HurricaneMaria struck their community in Humacao, #PuertoRico. Our partner @pecesinc had just delivered a UNICEF hygiene kit to them. One year later, the needs here remain great and many families are still waiting for their homes to be repaired. Still, Nadeisha and Elsa feel that life has slowly gotten better. Nadeisha says that the hurricane taught her to value what she has and to focus on her future. #StandWithPuertoRico #🇵🇷

Remember 9-year-old Sofia? Earlier this summer, we met her family in Barranquitas, #PuertoRico while their roof was under construction. It has since been completed, thanks to our partners @allhandsandhearts and student volunteers from #CUNY and @suny. Sofia’s mom, Suly, says that it’s taken some time for life to get back to normal, but her dream of having her home restored is starting to come true. Sofia was so grateful to have a new roof that she painted the names of the volunteers on the wall outside her bedroom, including her friend Sadie. One year after #HurricaneMaria barreled into #PuertoRico, #UNICEF USA is still on the ground assisting recovery efforts in storm-damaged communities. We're proud to support this work so that children like Sofia can feel safe and protected. #StandWithPuertoRico #AllHandsAndHearts #🇵🇷

#Handwashing saves lives! In the Democratic Republic of Congo, children learn how to correctly wash their hands in order to prevent the spread of #Ebola. After the recent confirmation of two new cases, #UNICEF #DRCongo is scaling up its response to protect children and families at risk in the city of Butembo. Hygiene is the best way to stop the deadly disease in its tracks. 📸: @unicefrdcongo

In #Syria, Zainab, 7, fled from Homs with her family and now lives in a displacement camp in #Idlib. She has never seen the inside of a classroom. With the recent escalation of fighting threatening the lives of more than one million children in the city, UNICEF is working to protect children from violence and providing essential water, hygiene, nutrition, health and education supplies. #ChildrenofSyria 📸: @unicef_mena
