Press Release by the
Ummah Support Initiative ( USI) on the war between Israel and Hamas.
War can have devastating effects on children, especially in terms of loss of education and psychological trauma. One of the major consequences of war is the disruption of educational opportunities for children.
Schools may be destroyed, damaged, or forced to close, leaving children without access to formal education. This deprives them of the chance to develop important skills and knowledge for their future and can hinder their long-term prospects.
Additionally, the psychological trauma caused by war can have long-lasting effects on children. Experiences such as witnessing violence, losing loved ones, or being displaced from their homes can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
The emotional scars resulting from these experiences can impact their overall well-being and development.
Furthermore, children affected by war may also face physical harm, such as injuries from bombings, shootings, or other forms of violence. They may also be subjected to forced recruitment or abduction, putting their lives at risk and further exacerbating their vulnerability.
It is important to address these issues and provide support to affected children. Efforts should be made to ensure their access to education, provide psychological support and counseling, and create safe environments where their rights and well-being are protected.
By prioritizing the welfare of children affected by war, we can work towards minimizing the long-term impact of conflict on their lives.
The Ummah Support Initiative ( USI) is calling all institutions and people of influence around the world to stop the war.
