IFRC Child Safeguarding during COVID-19 preparedness, response and recovery

Child safeguarding refers to the actions that a humanitarian agency takes in order to ensure all the children it serves, or comes into contact with, are safe from harm, including violence, abuse and exploitation. Child safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility including in emergencies. Like all humanitarian agencies, Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies are expected to follow the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action in order to protect children from all forms of violence, abuse and exploitation in our operations.
