Summary

Child refugees live in constant fear, uncertainly and instability. The conflicts taking place in countries like Syria, South Sudan, Uganda, and Bangladesh have turned over 10 million children's homes into darkened memories. Violence has become a way of life for them, while persecution makes these children especially vulnerable. Recent attacks in Syria have forced many families to flee, leaving even more children with no place to call home.

Challenge

Approximately half of the world's 22.5 million refugees are children. This staggering number will continue to rise so long as violence and conflict in their home countries continues. What's worse, their families' desperate journey to safety puts children at even greater risk. So long as refugee families are on the move, refugee children are extremely vulnerable.

Solution

Thanks to generous supporters like you, Save the Children is there for children in the countries they are fleeing, while they're on the move, and when they arrive and need to settle safely. 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.

Long-Term Impact

Despite extreme humanitarian challenges, is committed to continuing to help millions of refugee children. We're providing lifesaving services and supplies. We're tending to children's physical and emotional needs. And we're setting up safe places for children in crisis to learn and play, critical for child development.
