Syrian crisis

After nine years of conflict, children continue to pay the heaviest price of this deadly conflict.

Nearly 6 million Syrian children have known nothing but war and displacement since they were born in the last 10 years. A child in Syria has been killed every 10 hours. 

More than 2.5 million children have been uprooted and forced to flee to neighboring countries in search of safety. They are more than just numbers, each and every single Syrian child deserves a better life and a brighter future which you can help build.

The risks of malnutrition and food insecurity after years of conflict have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is also causing significant disruption to education due to measures put in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
