Irish Actress Evanna Lynch vaccinated newborn babies and distributed school bags as part of a visit to the Philippines with the EU and UNICEF Ireland to meet children whose lives were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan last November. The visit launches a new online campaign to raise the voices of children in emergencies - childrensvoices.ie.
Children are always the most vulnerable in humanitarian crises, and most at risk of disease, malnutrition, exploitation and abuse.
