European Union External Action



A range of communication materials and learning aids on healthy living and care-seeking behaviours were launched in Dili, Timor-Leste.

Special guest of the event Mrs. Cidália Lopez Nobre Mouzinho Guterres, the first lady of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste jointly launched these materials in the presence of the EU Ambassador Alexandre Leitão and Valerie Taton, UNICEF Representative.

"I am happy here. I came here to learn and to draw" - these are the words of 12-year-old Fatima, one of several migrant children returning to Afghanistan from Iran, now happily benefiting from UNICEF's EU-funded child friendly spaces.

At home or in our external action, whether in situations of conflict, migration, poverty, when deprived of liberty or in contact with the law, children's rights need to be protected and promoted.
