Event description

Description

Happy Child is a large-scale European project initiated aimed at ensuring that no child grows up alone and is a response to the refugee crisis. Since March 2011, 13.5 million people have been affected, of which 5.8 million are children.

Through the "Happy Child" project, Kiwanis will help UNICEF implement interventions aimed at fostering assistance, reception and inclusion of unaccompanied foreign minors protecting them from violence and exploitation.

In particular, the "Happy Child" project plans to finance the following activities:

  • Supply of first aid and recreational-recreation kits on the main Coast Guard ships carrying out rescue missions in the Mediterranean Sea
  • First medical assistance in Lampedusa , through the presence of a gynaecologist doctor in support of the local clinic
  • Promotion of an alternative reception system by selecting and accompanying foster families
  • Training of operators and volunteers who encourage social inclusion and prevent the abandonment of the formal reception system by children.
