UN Secretary-General António Guterres writes: "I am heartened by the commitment that the ChildFund Alliance has shown in support of children, youths and families in preventing and overcoming poverty around the world. We all must play a role and work together to deliver on our global commitments to protect and enhance human rights and to ensure sustainable development, climate mitigation and adaption, as well as peace and security for everyone, in particular, the most vulnerable.
