Children affected by humanitarian crises are among
the most vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, violence and neglect and
most in need of protection, yet there is limited commitment to fund
protective responses. Throughout 2020, the impact of the global COVID-19
pandemic and the containment measures have layered risk upon risk for
children in humanitarian crises. Although the overall funding for child
protection is increasing, the funding gap remains wide due to the needs
increasing at an alarming rate. This report builds on analysis undertaken in 2019 and documented in the report Unprotected: Crisis in Humanitarian Funding for Child Protection (Unprotected 2019) and incorporates 2019 and 2020 funding, as well as additional funding streams related to refugee context.

This thematic report provides
global analysis on the gendered impact of the pandemic in key areas of
humanitarian programming such as livelihood, income and employment or
health and protection.
Children who are exposed to the secondary impacts of the pandemic, such as reduced household income or closed schools, and who live in areas with reduced oversight mechanisms may face increased likelihood of child marriage, forced labor, or female genital mutilation.

Many of the measures taken by countries to contain the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in disruptions to child protection services. Despite this, many countries have worked to ensure that child helplines remain operational, making such mechanisms even more critical for reporting and referring cases of violence and for providing support to victims. The purpose of this paper is to document what has occurred, and been reported, to child helplines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
