Right now, across the world, millions of children are caught up in conflicts they played no part in creating. Children make up more than half of the world's 22.5 million refugees from countries like Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, Uganda, and Bangladesh. The recent events in Afghanistan only add to the existing global refugee crisis, forcing tens of thousands of people to flee violence and persecution. Save the Children remains committed to doing everything we can to help children around the world,
The recent events in Afghanistan only add to the existing global refugee crisis, forcing tens of thousands of people to flee violence and persecution. Refugee children are particularly vulnerable, as education, health care, nutrition and other resources are extremely difficult to access in a crisis like this. The trauma of violence, displacement and the uncertainty that follows also takes an immense toll on children.

We're doing whatever it takes to end the war on childhood - so all the world's children have a future. We're working nonstop to ensure children are safe, cared for and learning.
