In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey , we have seen many stories of strangers jumping in to help those in need. The sudden need for emergency services has brought out the best in many people, including both adults and children. Often children wonder what they can do to help, but in the case of 11-year-old Brooke Cobb, there was never any question about how she could help. After watching many evacuate in several feet of water, Cobb knew there was an immediate need for some necessities. Instead of worrying about raising millions of dollars, the little girl sprung into immediate action. Cobb started a charity for the victims, with the simple goal of putting new shoes on the feet of anyone in need.
Following the webinar attendees will be sent details of a second video workshop addressing Age Assessment Law and Practice for Child Victims of Trafficking. Delivered by Shu Shin Luh a barrister whose practice has a strong human rights and anti-discrimination focus. Shu Shin also acts in a legal advisory role to UK and international organisations on the rights and protection of victims of trafficking. This webinar serves as a guide for all legal professionals and guardians who work with separated children seeking asylum and child victims of trafficking whose age might be assessed and/or disputed in various legal contexts.
