UNICEF says youth in Haiti remain optimistic amid worsening instability

The United Nations Children's Fund says the youth in Haiti remain optimistic amid worsening instability and that the crisis in the CARICOM country has left children among the most vulnerable to extreme violence, malnutrition, poverty, and collapsing social systems.
 
The UN agency said it surveyed over 3,500 young people in early June, the majority of whom believe their rights are rarely or never respected.
 
But despite this stark reality, a shocking majority of youth respondents to the UNICEF survey still believe the future of children is brighter than it is in the present.
 
The UN said Haiti continues to suffer a series of political, socio-economic, and security crises.
