More than eleven years of destructive conflict in Syria has hit those who are least responsible the hardest – the nation’s children. Help protect children living through conflict.
The conflict in Syria has devastated the lives of a generation of young people. Half of Syria’s children have grown up knowing nothing but conflict and displacement, facing fear and uncertainty.
5 million children are in need of humanitarian assistance amid ongoing violence and displacement.
Now, in 2022, children in Syria face the triple threat of conflict, COVID-19 and the climate crisis. Many have missed years of education. An estimated 2.4 million children are out of school and another 1.6 million children are at risk of dropping out. Health infrastructure that would be vital in combating any public health emergency, such as COVID-19, has been decimated.
Children need support more than ever. Don’t let them suffer a lifetime of war. Donate to our Children’s Emergency Fund to help protect children living through conflict.
After 11 years of conflict in Syria, millions of children have had the worst possible start in life.
Our humanitarian teams and partners in Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq and Turkey are also present in camps and host communities, providing Syrian refugees and vulnerable children from these host communities with food, shelter, water and sanitary services, and access to medical care, education and child protection.
The war in Syria has hit hardest those who are least responsible – children. Tens of thousands of innocent children have been killed or injured in the decade-long conflict. Those children who have survived are experiencing chronic stress due to violence, loss and instability.
