CHD President Mary Holland: ‘Children Should Have No Role in Violent Conflict’

Children’s Health Defense President Mary Holland today issued the following statement in response to media reports of violence affecting children in Gaza, Israel and elsewhere.

Our mission at Children’s Health Defense (CHD) is to protect children’s health and freedom, yet these ideals are impossible when children are trapped by terrorism and war.

CHD grieves for the children and families that have been injured or have died in violent conflicts occurring in the world today. 

We condemn acts that intentionally or negligently target children. Children should have no role in violent conflict.

CHD calls on all parties, governmental and non-governmental, to seek diplomatic solutions. All children deserve health, freedom and peace.

This statement is a respost from The Defender.
