Putting children at the heart of the World Humanitarian Summit: Laal Bibi’s story

14 Apr 2016, ECHO

Laal Bibi, 16, lives with her family in an under-developed district of the Punjab province in Pakistan which was heavily impacted by floods in 2015. Following that dramatic event, she now takes part in a disaster risk reduction youth group organised by Plan International. A new PI report stresses the importance of consulting children, especially adolescent girls who face a particular risk of exclusion, at all stages of disaster preparedness and response.
