Description: The pandemic has had a tremendous global impact on the young generation. All around the world, quarantine restrictions disrupted children’s health campaigns last year.

Hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren had nowhere to spend their summer vacations and looked for other ways and places – not always safe.
