Every war is a war on children.
    Children are victims of the armed invasion of Ukraine. This war ignores all children’s rights and human rights. Children are suffering from injury and all sorts of emotional trauma – many of them will never heal nor forget across their life course.
    Unprotected families and our colleagues are victims. The majority must stay in cities under heavy bombardment of their homes, in underground shelters with high risk to get wounded or killed.
    Thousands of families are forced to flee the war zone, finding shelter in neighbor countries after many hours or days of walking and waiting in the cold. Many families are separated.
    Ukraine now needs every possible humanitarian support, for the families and our colleagues in and outside Ukraine.
    Stop this war, which is so deeply impacting the lives and the souls of children! NOW!

ECPCP fully endorses the following latest declaration of ISSOP (International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health) on the rights, health and well-being of children and youth on the move, signed in Budapest in October 2017.

We began discussing the feasibility of global standards for training and assessment. If this were possible, through collaboration with the global pediatric community, the outcome could be a dramatic improvement in the quality of care we provide to the world's children.
