Humanitarian crisis deepens in Haiti calling for immediate aid

Plan International is deeply concerned by the significant increase in violence in Haiti. Gang violence has now displaced more than 362,000 people from their homes, a figure that has increased by 15,000 in just 10 days. Of those displaced from their homes, one in three (32%) are children and adolescents.

Massive increase in aid to Gaza desperately needed to stop children dying from starvation

Children are dying from starvation in Gaza. We’re calling for an immediate, unconditional and permanent ceasefire and a massive increase in humanitarian assistance. The Australian Government must reinstate funding immediately to UNRWA – the main aid provider for the 1.1 million children facing starvation in Gaza – and must prioritise delivering lifesaving aid to people in Gaza.

A commitment to the Glasgow Statement is a commitment for children and young people’s futures – the Australian Government must now step up and end support for fossil fuel projects at home 

Plan International Australia welcomes the Australian Government signing onto the Glasgow Statement at COP28 yesterday, ruling out funding of overseas fossil fuel projects. This is a positive step to a clean energy transition to help ensure a clean and healthy environment for children and young people. 

Statement - 6 December 2023

Suffering and killing in Gaza must stop now

After a pause in fighting for just one week, Plan International is devastated by the resumption of violence in Gaza over the weekend and the shocking number of civilians and children being killed in a matter of days. Following the week-long pause and the release of 110 hostages from Gaza and 240 Palestinian prisoners, hopes held out by humanitarian agencies of a permanent and lasting ceasefire were crushed when Israel’s bombardments across the Gaza Strip resumed on Friday 1 December.

Statement - 17 November 2023

Children in Gaza cannot wait any longer for a ceasefire

Since 7 October, 11,078 people, including over 4600 children, have been killed in Gaza. We demand a complete and unconditional ceasefire, immediately. In 41 days 11,078 people, including over 4,600 children, have been killed according to the United Nations. No conflict should ever reach this point.
