The #TIME100 most influential leaders this year features, obviously, both #Zelensky & #Putin.

One is destroying lives of many millions of people.
The other shows us true leadership, bravery and how the fight for #freedom - the essential right we take for granted - unites us

This war exposed many people, revealed our values, allowed us to reevaluate them.

On the #TIME100, therefore, are Von Der Leyen, Biden and Scholtz - all playing a BIG ROLE in the evolution and progression of the war. Note, inclusion on the list is not an endorsement

Russia, the invader, purposely ignores all #humanitarian laws, the army has no morals and knowingly commits #genocide.

The bravery of Ukrainian people, coupled with the exceptional command by #Zaluzhnyy, allowed them to beat all predictions by war experts worldwide

⚠️⚠️We need your attention to one of the child campaigns organized by @87films!

As many families live together in peace with their families and friends today, families in Afghanistan are praying day and night not to lose their children due to malnutrition. (1/3) Image
The number of malnourished children is rapidly increasing, and children are the primary victims of this unprecedented crisis.
We ask everyone reading this to donate (any amount can make a difference) or share the link widely with their community and those who can contribute. 2/3

What may happen to a child recruited or used by an armed force or armed group?

❗️Physical harm
❗️Sexual abuse
❗️Mental and psychological harm
❗️Family separation
❗️Lack of education
❗️Compromised future

No children should be subject to this.
This year, we mark the 15th anniversary of the #ParisPrinciples on recruitment of children into armed forces or armed groups.

These Principles and Commitments are a crucial to protect children in situations of armed conflict, and complement international law.
As 112 states and numerous #humanitarian organizations take leadership on this critical issue, we call for more States to endorse and implement the #ParisPrinciples and Commitments.

This will help in reducing child recruitment and support children’s reintegration into society.

On March 8, a little girl named Asra was filmed cold and trembling in a slurry of muddy snow, crying on a street corner in Kabul, Afg
The heartbreaking clip soon went viral, grabbing the attention of Aseel donor Francesca, who couldn't bear seeing a child suffering to that extent Image
In response, we sent volunteers searching for Asra near the video location. Our volunteer team continually searched and posted about her on social media for over a month to no avail until finally, this week, we tracked her down with help from Maki Ahmadi (who posted the clip).
Asra lives in a tiny dwelling with her family in Kabul. They were displaced from Mazar after the political shift in the country. Asra's father is sick and unable to support the family, leaving Asra the sole breadwinner. Their living condition is beyond heart-wrenching.

It's OFFICIAL: #Indonesia Military Finally Ends ‘Virginity Test'🙌🏾
Indonesia’s armed forces have finally ended all so-called “virginity tests” as part of the recruitment process for women.
Last week, Indonesian armed forces spokesman Maj. Gen. Sudirman announced that all three ImageImage
branches of the military – the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force – had “effectively ended virginity tests” for recruitment.
The military’s first actions against this abusive practice began in June 2021 when then-Army Chief General Andika Perkasa issued an order to army commanders
that female recruits should only be assessed on their ability to take part in physical training.
He also ordered that the fiancées of male officers who applied for permission to get married no longer needed to get a medical check, including a “virginity test.”

Fascinating 🧵 by @heatherwilly on the P5's joint paper on strategic nuclear domain, which highlights the importance of crisis prevention/communication mechanisms.

This ties in with questions I have about the potential for P5 dialogues on non-nuclear conflict management. [1/5]
As I argue @CFR_CPA/@CFR_org, the P5 could do more joint confidence-building work on other (ultimately lower-stakes) conflict management issues like #humanitarian aid, #stabilisation etc. on the model of their nuclear talks. [2/5]…
Such P5 work (deliberately at a distance from the fetid day-to-day diplomacy of the #UNSC) could pave the way for the P5 summit that @franceonu has been pursuing for the last 2 years. [3/5]…

After >2 years of research on #humanitarian #inclusion at @hpg_odi, we’re finally starting to pull everything together. We’re not quite there yet, but about ready to share some of our workings-out… 1/17 (yes, yes I know, buckle up etc.)
First, what are we talking about here? As @VeroBarbelet and Caitlin Wake lay out here, #inclusion can be broken down into:
1️⃣ Equitable access,
2️⃣ Specific and diverse needs,
3️⃣ Participation
4️⃣ Impartiality 2/17…
So, aid is inclusive when access barriers removed, when it’s sensitive to different needs, when (different) people have a chance to shape how it’s delivered, and reaches the most urgent cases. Basically, inclusion is 𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 3/17
