Inger Ashing: Are we failing to protect vulnerable children? | Talk to Al Jazeera

by News Update

According to the United Nations, last year brought “a spate of grave violations” against children in conflict zones, despite decades of advocacy by NGOs.

One of the institutions working to improve the lives of children is Save the Children. Its chief executive officer, Inger Ashing, recently travelled to Burkina Faso as many minors living in the Central Sahel region risk illegal recruitment by armed groups.

But to many in need, NGOs have failed to successfully make a difference in their lives.

So are we failing to protect vulnerable children? Inger Ashing, CEO of Save the Children, talks to Al Jazeera.

@AlJazeera
You show the truth of every other countries except the truth going on in your own country.
eg. the condition in which the workers are working in Qatar with no rights, no salaries from 4-5 months and many other things in which neither your law nor your ministries are helping.

I would like to know why these groups who are not considered a threat by our "So Called leader of the free nations". Is it because there is no gain in this deal? I know that the only thing that drove me onwards was the ability to help the Kurdish and Afghan people. The children saw us as the people who would take them to safety but now when I look back I am disgusted at the entire waste of lives. Now, I see this and I as an ex soldier, even though I am retired I feel like putting my uniform on again and offering protection to someone. Life is frustrating when you see the capabilities of these terrible people and how much some help would be appreciated. It does not need war or conversio to Democracy, they just need to be protected so they can grow and if threats arise, then the protection takes a stand away from the people. ISIL and Alkiada have all benefitted from the USA leaving behind so much equipment, the ruling Taliban in Afghanistan are the key stake holders of this. This is what the free nations should be helping with, not risking the globe over the Ukraine and Taiwan. UN Peace keepers are as useful as a condom full of holes. There are more complaints about their behaviours than any good they do, they cannot fight, they can only watch. I wish you luck to succeed in this endeavor and I hope the children can have a future 🙏🙏🙏

What is happening to the children in AMERICA? Those immigrating here, that are being separated from their families. The Government is hiding them, flying, and busing them places in the middle of the night and no one knows why or where. What is happening to them???

what everyone knows to be true.

Too many tears have been shed.

But why?
'' we are talked a lot about, but we are not listened to '' why?

Thanks
Al Jazeera for awareness!
