UNICEF working in partership with Natural Childhood, Please see the current Scottish Parliament Motion below:

S2M-4417 Ms Rosemary Byrne: Humanitarian Disaster in Africa—That the Parliament notes the urgent appeal by UNICEF in respect of the unfolding humanitarian disaster in the Horn of Africa; recognises that more than 8,780,000 people, including 4,455,000 children, are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance; notes that there has been a failure of crops and loss of livestock which has increased morbidity and mortality, as well as malnutrition, in children; notes that in all five countries in the Horn of Africa UNICEF is providing cluster co-ordination leadership in nutrition and water and sanitation whilst contributing significantly to World Health Organisation-led co-ordination in health and supporting education and child protection; therefore pledges to assist the UNICEF appeal on behalf of the people of Scotland, and calls on the Scottish Executive to contact UNICEF on this matter with a view to providing meaningful assistance to UNICEF in whatever way it can.

Supported by: Donald Gorrie, Rob Gibson, Campbell Martin, Eleanor Scott, Fiona Hyslop, Tommy Sheridan, Carolyn Leckie, Mr Adam Ingram, Chris Ballance, Ms Maureen Watt, John Swinburne, Linda Fabiani, Dr Jean Turner, Shiona Baird, Rosie Kane
