Why is it important?
The number of families facing humanitarian crises mostly from conflict (but gradually from also natural disasters) is on constant rise. Most interventions in such situations focus mostly on food, shelter, essential medical needs and at times financial support. While the family might be the only existing social institution around the lives of children, Interventions supporting capitalizing on it are quite scarce and often not accounted for. This manuscript describes the availability, feasibility and effectiveness in such tools to support caregivers in such situations avail a much better prospects for their kids for healthy and safe development (whilst of course lessening the burden on the caregiver too).
