By the end of 2015, over 8.6 million children's lives will have been torn apart by violence and displacement in Syria.
Right now, there are 2 million Syrian refugee children living in neighbouring countries like Turkey. The majority of these children live in host communities where they work several jobs instead of going to school.
This is no life for a child.
For displaced families forced to shelter in makeshift refugee camps, UNICEF is providing housing, child friendly spaces, schools and medical facilities - but more support is needed.
Since the conflict began, more than 100,000 Syrian children have been born as refugees. Sadly, this is the only life they've know.
Please donate now. Syrian children need your help more than ever.
Syrian children have suffered through four years of conflict.
The Syria conflict has passed the four-year mark, and UNICEF estimates that at least 7 million internally displaced and refugee children are in desperate need of assistance.
Many continue to live in unfinished buildings and inadequate shelters that expose them to dust, strong winds and searing temperatures.
Please donate today. Help protect Syrian children.
“By the end of 2015, the lives of over 8.6 million children across the region will have been torn apart by violence and forced displacement".
Maria Calivis, UNICEF Regional Director (Middle East and North Africa)
In 2014, thanks to donations, UNICEF provided winter clothing for 840,000 children and supported polio vaccinations for over 2.8 million children in Syria as part of a region-wide campaign reaching 28 million children. We also provided school lessons and psychological support to tens of thousands of children.
PLEASE DONATE NOW. Help us reach more Syrian children caught in the crisis and prevent a whole generation of children being lost to conflict.
