Sprinklr Publishing : They're not soldiers.
They're not terrorists.
They're not weapons.
They're not targets.

Just children.

Tragically 1 in 10 kids worldwide are affected by armed conflict.

Twitter Web App : Behind every headline are thousands of people & families.
Behind every story shared are countless others unspoken.

Here is what some of those affected by the #NagornoKarabakh conflict told us about the pain and loss of past weeks:

Sprinklr Publishing : Over 20% of people living in a conflict zones live with some form of mental health problem.

This is 3x more than the rest of the world.

Sprinklr Publishing : ⚠️ Climate change isn't equal. ⚠️

- If you're marginalised you will be disproportionately affected.

- Live in a conflict zone? Your area is less able to prepare and respond.

- Low-income countries suffer more.

Sprinklr Publishing : Winter approaches as the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict intensifies.

With temperatures dropping, thousands of people face freezing weather sheltering in unheated basements.

Sprinklr Publishing : Sick.
Tired.
Weak.
Scared.
Hungry.
Injured.

Today 26 boats landed at Paquitequete beach, in Pemba.

All of them filled with people fleeing violence.

In the last 10 days, almost 10,000 people have arrived at the beach in Mozambique.

Sprinklr Publishing : How can you stay safe from COVID-19, when home is not safe?

The escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict could lead to a spike in cases.

- Thousands of homes destroyed.
- Families are forced to move.
- People seeking shelter in crowded basements.

Twitter Web App : My heart goes out to all those fleeing the violence in Cabo Delgado. Every week, 1000s of men, women and children make this journey on foot or by boat, leaving behind everything they know and have; arriving to a place they don’t know with just the clothes they have.

Sprinklr Publishing : A victory for humanity.

A promise of a safer future.

A #NuclearBan. bbc.in/2HtFTKy

Sprinklr Publishing : Their consequences are unimaginable.
Their destruction is unparalleled.
Now, they will be illegal.

We finally have a #NuclearBan.

Sprinklr Publishing : There’s no plan.

No team of heroes coming to save you.

We simply couldn’t cope if the nuclear bomb is used again.

That’s why a #NuclearBan is the only option.

Yesterday we achieved it.

Sprinklr Publishing : A piece of good news from 2020: we’ve banned the bomb!

Yesterday the 50th State ratified the treaty to ban nuclear weapons.

They must never be used again.

Twitter Web App : The logic of nuclear deterrence is dangerous.

Too many times we have seen it drag the world to the brink of destruction.

Nuclear weapons are not an inevitable part of the international security architecture.

Twitter Web App : In a few months’ time a new global norm will enter into force explicitly prohibiting nuclear weapons — the most terrifying and inhumane weapon ever created.

Today the 50th State ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Twitter Web App : First a State must sign the Treaty, showing their intention to be legally bound by it.

84 States have already signed the #NuclearBan treaty.

Then they must hand in a letter to the UN. This is called an “instrument of ratification”, it’s the final stage in the process.

Twitter Web App : Around two thirds of UN member States voted to ban nuclear weapons in 2017.

So what does it mean to “ratify a treaty”? Why is it so important? In short, this treaty is the beginning of the end of the era of nuclear weapons.

Twitter Web App : We banned the bomb!

A rare piece of good news in 2020: nuclear weapons are about to become illegal, after the 50th State ratified the #NuclearBan.

Sprinklr Publishing : Since the pandemic began, have you experienced:

- Sleeping problems?
- Constant worry?
- Mood swings and irritability?
- Loneliness?

You’re not alone.
