UN: 'Migrant caravan' children show 'signs of anguish and psychosocial distress' — UNICEF

UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric gave a warning, at the UN Headquarters in New York City on Wednesday, that the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) has found that children traveling with the migrant caravan in Mexico are in need of support. According to UNICEF, «many children traveling with the migrant caravan are showing signs of anguish and psychosocial distress... Еще» and in certain cases «are expressing fears of violence and separation from their families.» Thousands of migrants, mostly fleeing violence and poverty, have been traveling for almost a month after the group first formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Although the caravan must still travel around 965 kilometres (600 miles) to reach the US-Mexico border, US President Donald Trump has stationed soldiers on the frontier already and has pledged to send thousands more.
