#PhotoOfTheWeek - #Haiti - 12 January marks the two-year anniversary (#haiti2year) of the earthquake that killed some 220,000 Haitians, displaced more than 1.6 million and destroyed vital infrastructure. Progress since the quake has been substantial, including for children. But, Haiti remains a fragile and impoverished state that continues to need international assistance.

Can You See Me? #SierraLeone: Leila [NAME CHANGED] was sexually abused by an older man in her home village and is now pregnant. She lives with her sister in Kailahun District. “I don’t feel good about being pregnant because I’m just a small girl,” Leila said. She has dropped out of school but hopes to return and study nursing. Sierra Leone has the world’s highest maternal mortality rate, in part due to inadequate protection or maternal care for girls and women.

#PhotoOfTheWeek: In late 2011, the world’s population reached #7billion. Every newborn child has the right to a standard of living adequate for her or his physical, mental, spiritual, moral and social development. Ensuring that the youngest among us achieve that right is the surest path to a truly sustainable world. An infant cries in an incubator at a UNICEF-supported hospital in Chisinau.

CAN YOU SEE ME? #Romania - Alisia’s foster brother, Andre, helps her on the stairway of their apartment building, in the town of Spoloziia. Alisia is one of seven children; her parents could not afford to care for her and placed her in an institution until Andre’s mother, Nicoletta, became her foster parent. Institutional care for children under 3 years old is known to damage their mental and emotional development.

#PhotoOfTheWeek: UNICEF photography advocates for the world’s most vulnerable children, offering visual evidence in support of children’s rights. UNICEF’s newest photography essay, ‘2011 in photographs’, narrates the year’s story of these rights - violated by poverty, conflict and climate change but also advanced through political openings and improved services. Children in the Central African Republic are reflected, amid clouds, in a pool of water.

Can you see me?: #Bangladesh - Komali [NAME CHANGED] is 17. She left school after the seventh grade to help support her family. A young man took her to a brothel in the village of Bania Shanta, where, initially, she assisted the ‘madam’ with chores. For the last three years, Komali has been a sex worker there. An estimated 350 of Bania Shanta’s 700 residents are sex workers, and the villag...e’s brothels are considered high risk for HIV transmission.
