Moving Minds Alliance and ECDAN Joint Statement on Early Childhood Development and the Afghanistan and Haiti Crises

On World Humanitarian Day, the Moving Minds Alliance and the Early Childhood Development Action Network express deep concern and support for the people of Afghanistan and Haiti and draw attention to the immediate and long-term impacts of these humanitarian crises. The wounds, trauma and instability inflicted by these two events—one geopolitical and one environmental—are unimaginable and further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. These events come on the heels of humanitarian crises in Lebanon, Palestine, Venezuela, Ethiopia, Syria, and many more places around the world.
