IOM - UN Migration

Double tap if you think safety in schools is important. Deputy Principal of a 200-pupil strong secondary school Rose noted that girls in her school were facing the same problem she did as a young girl.

With the help of @iomsouthsudan, she promoted good hygiene practices and created better conditions for her young students. 📷 Olivia Headon / UN Migration (IOM)

It's Universal Health Coverage Day! ❤️
.
IOM works to promote the right to health for all persons including citizens and foreign nationals, create a system that is migrant-sensitive, and improve access to health services.

Universal Health Coverage means #HealthForAll, including migrants.

Joy holds her 5-month-old baby, Elizabeth, near her home in Juba, South Sudan. Lack of access to water means that women have to walk long distances, putting them at risk of being attacked.
Joy is hopeful though because of a solar-powered water system that @IOMsouthsudan recently constructed for her community.
She is on the water management committee, which she says is important because “our voices are included in the decision-making process” and because “it can encourage more women to take other leadership roles in the community”. 📷 Olivia Headon / UN Migration (IOM) .

“I was only 10 years old when we left. I remember my father tying me to his back with a rope so we would not get lost,” Olivier says. “My parents and one of my brothers were killed in the war. I do not know about my other brother, I think that he is still in the DRC forest.” After Olivier returned to Rwanda with the help of IOM, he was able to start a new business.
.
“I rented this place with 3 friends with the start-up cash that was given to us. It is better to come back to Rwanda and contribute to the country than to keep on the run stealing food and dying of diseases.”

Did you know? 80% of the world’s 155 million stunted children live in countries in conflict. The number of undernourished people are on the rise again from 804 million in 2016 to 821 million in 2017.
Conflict and climate change drive people to food insecurity, displacing people from their farms, disrupting food markets and transport systems and causing high food prices.

The relationship is indeed complex and affected by other variables such as social, political and economic drivers.

Did you know? In recent decades, the climate in Mongolia has changed dramatically, outstripping the herders’ capacity to adapt.
.
To help local communities, IOM organized a simulation designed to minimize forced migration during the country’s cold winters.
