UNITED NATIONS, May 16 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the European Union (EU) on Monday announced the launch of a new social media-driven public awareness campaign aimed at reaching 20 million Europeans and highlighting the importance of education for children affected by emergencies.

The #EmergencyLessons campaign specifically targets people 25 years old and younger in Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia and the United Kingdom to inspire them to raise their voices on behalf of millions of children and adolescents whose education has been interrupted by emergencies, UNICEF said in a press release.

"Young people understand better than anyone how important education is to their lives today and to their futures," said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake.

"Who knows better than they that their tomorrows depend on what they learn today? Who, better than today's youth, can demand that the world provides them with the skills they will need to build a better world? Their future, and ours, depends on it," he added.

The campaign draws on the real-life experiences of children living through emergencies in countries such as Guinea, Iraq, Nepal and Ukraine. Throughout the next seven months, their stories will be shared on social media through #EmergencyLessons.

Nearly one in four of the world's school-age children -- 462 million -- now live in 35 countries affected by crises, including an estimated 75 million children who are in desperate need of educational support, UNICEF said.

Apart from missing out on education, and the benefits it yields for them and for their societies, out-of-school children are more vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and recruitment by armed forces, the agency said.

UNICEF noted that the campaign also celebrates the other benefits of going to school -- the friends made, the teachers who support children through trauma, and the stability found in the routine of attending classes.

"Here in Europe, we tend to take school for granted, and forget what a vital part of life it is to children, especially when everything else around them is collapsing," said Christos Stylianides, EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management. "We hope this campaign will better help Europeans understand why, when disaster strikes, opportunities to learn are just as important as access to food, water, vaccines and shelter."

UNICEF noted that a number of celebrities are lending their support to the campaign, such as Samantha Cristoforetti, Italian European Space Agency astronaut; Bostjan Nachbar, Slovenian basketball player; Kriszta D. Toth, Hungarian news presenter and media personality, and Jaro Bekr, Slovakian dancer.

Recently I had the difficult discussion with my dad about his plans for aging. And regrettably they weren’t very good – basically he has no plan and is faced with some tough prospects. Like numerous Americans adidas nmd for sale , he has a lower income and needs to work hard just to make ends meet. He hasn’t taken great care of himself as a result of a lack of insurance and funds. A consequence of this was that his doctor had to tell him that he wouldn’t have the ability to work for as long as he originally believed he would be able to.

What can possibly be done? Chances are that he’ll need some sort of senior care soon. We began seeking options for housing. By far his greatest expense is and will continue to be housing. If there was some strategy to decrease this cost, that would likely be essentially the most efficient way of increasing his accessible earnings. However, he desires to stay independant in his own residence for as long as achievable. That was when I truly began my investigation. His best solution seems to be government subsidized housing.

Numerous states offer various programs to subsidize housing for those in need of elder care Women's Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Core Black Peach Restock , and you’ll find even some from the national government; however, there are more who qualify than can be served. As just one example, the city of Reading 2016 Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black Shoes Clearance , Pennsylvania has more than 1500 families in the waiting list for their available programs, and the majority of those on the waiting list are age 50 or older. In a lot of ways, these programs may not satisfy my father’s requirements soon enough.

And Dad isn’t the only senior facing this challenge. As the typical age of citizens increases (by some estimates Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Core Black White Clearance , within the USA, the over 65 population will increase from 13% in 2010 to almost 20% by 2030) and the economic climate fails to get back on its feet, there has been nothing but an increase in the need for senior subsidized housing. Based on the AARP and their 2011 study Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Shoes Core Black Solar Red Sale , as many as 98% of seniors with low incomes can be referred to as “burdened” by the cost of their housing (which means that they spend 30% or more of their earnings on housing).

A senior who is facing well being issues is more likely to find housing to be a severe burden. The burden of housing makes it very difficult for the elderly to also get the other aid they may require (including, but not restricted to, a caregiver at home for support with important tasks Adidas Ultra Boost x Porshe Design Shoes All White , costly prescriptions, and all of the other burdens of senior healthcare).

As one of my dad’s future caregivers, my challenge is to help him figure out a strategy to lower his living costs to ensure that he may be capable of affording the other help he will require in the future. How can this be completed with the overburdened subsidized housing market? Here are some actions we’re taking.
