11:09 am
a son. you've actually seen what the situation on the ground is. is there any hope and what is the real assessment or from the united nations and it's agencies of thank you very much for having me this afternoon. i ended up going out on this country and i can 3rd at this have been a, quite a tough your not yet for people underground. we have seen our children, but they go to go to school this year. as you know, there are some girls who are not allowed since much to come to schools. that's incredible. is that the only counter interwove where girls are going to with the school? and it's been tough to be tough for them to be tough for their families. as we thought for us as human intelligence, what is what is gone now? where is because what we've seen is a lot of broken promises from the people who are in charge. but they're also looking for legitimacy. they're also looking for funds the international community was releasing the money that this country requires to function and that has stopped
11:10 am
as well. so who is really responsible for the crisis that we're seeing in the last i want to 3rd at i'm extremely proud that to the surface didn't, didn't put in his company because he's still on from day one. you have been here providing services to the children, making sure that his health systems dropped for labs, making sure that a efficient system do not collapse because sure that's are, we are vested in addition crisis. because last year we're expecting to have 1100000 children reflected one at the should. here you will get this done so far the numbers are increasing or we have his signal going up. but i do believe that you are eligible to arrive at that crisis. and so we are very proud on behalf of the international community of this support that was given cook and stock to the children. for the woman. by every one we want to take care of, don't us what buttons a bottle. so we thought of committee who came in and supported us and both of the
11:11 am
make sure that, that the crisis that you all expected that can happen without we're also seeing what is on the ground. it's not just about the humanitarian crisis. there's been a reversal of rights for many parts of the off of the avalon society. you're also in touch, not just with people on the ground, but a parties in charge as well. what have they been telling you what the, what is the future? oh, been assigned according to what the plan of on seed with for me to the future going to start is it's children. are we need to invest in those children today. but when i talk with anybody, i don't that don't really very much. well, some about the children are very much concerned about the communities that, that yep, so i think that's a very good message that we get from them all the time that uses and what option the issues of this make sure that the services that earned and can is to discount the artwork to the people, i think is a very strong message opposed to one that comes to us on the time from them. and that's what we want to do from a very quickly a we've been seeing on the ground there. the schools in this country are in drill
11:12 am
desperate need more than 50 percent. don't even have running water or classrooms at the hospitals. they've been to and we were there together that they the babies are multiple babies on one bed. they're ventilate, is the incubator they're in full shape. so infrastructure is going to need investment and there seems to be a stepping back from the international committee of investing and working with the planet stand up. how are you going to overcome these challenges? and do you actually see those challenges multiplying in the future or you'd be able to control them? did this on the ground, are extreme, you've got jobs in them yourself, be deficient in health, and what is my vision? as i said, we have stepped in a lot, but it's not permitted throughout crisis. what can you put in for the children? but we need to do more as 50 units if you didn't wish to 1000000100 percent. so we did to do more. if you don't do more, if you don't get what is, what does it decrease you after what has been put in this so far,
11:13 am
we just pull up and that's great if you do see that in practice. and that was my question, that what is the risk care of it? it? because if you, if you don't feed these children, if you don't give them prospects, if you don't give them opportunities and you don't, don't get people jobs. what do you see of the biggest risk in a benefit going forward? well, they, because this would be that, that the, what is the future of children. if we don't, de yvette uses children. they're not of us. we're going to want to see tomorrow. i've got to say, what is, what is, but if you were kids are able to pick it up with what they're going to happen. if we don't do everything we can do from on the phone and your interactions, you think that the de facto authorities are partners. and i do believe that that part of that. but i really want to coordinate the community to say that this is not the time to let down the company. they are the future when investing them so far a lot has been done for them. we want to think everybody on the other got a partner, but you want to do more and we are looking forward to doing what,
11:14 am
what is 2 to 3. thank you very much for speaking with david. that's the version of events and situation on the ground from the united nation children's agency. and this is what we've been seeing from various actors who stayed here in atlanta on saying that the international community should not distance itself from the situation on the ground and understand it needs investment. it needs people to come forward and also on the fact to authorities to make sure that they are not just keeping their promises, but also looking forward to the future of life and investing in the people and their rights than jervey that for us on the ground in cobble, thanks so much. well, stella had here announces in waiting for union that may never come, fanny sat for those have gone missing during the war in ukraine. and how competition for votes and brazil is feeding the intolerance of minority religions that ah,
