Italy: UNICEF calls on Italian parliament to pass bill providing support for record number of unaccompanied refugee and migrant children
UNICEF – October 27, 2016
UNICEF is calling on the Italian parliament to urgently pass an historic bill that would strengthen support and protection for the record number of unaccompanied and separated children – at least 20,000 – who have arrived in Italy this year. Near daily reports of migrant drownings on the Mediterranean show clearly that passage of the bill cannot come a moment too soon for children risking their lives to reach Italian shores.
