“Child migrants deserve care and protection”
Child migrants, especially those travelling alone, deserve care and protection "every step of the way."
That's the key message coming from the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in a new report entitled "Beyond Borders". It was one of the key discussion points at this week's preparatory meeting for the up-coming Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, which took place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Ted Chaiban, UNICEF's Director of Programmes, explained to Giancarlo Summa, what was at stake for children in reaching a new global compact on refugees and migrants.
