As the crisis in the Syrian Arab Republic is well into its third year, and the daily headlines focus on military clashes and political efforts to resolve the crisis, the world must not forget the human realities at stake. The risk of losing a generation grows with every day that the situation deteriorates, while the progress made for Syrian children in previous years is undone. UNICEF and its partners are committed to keeping Syrian children from becoming a ‘lost generation’.
Critical efforts are being made to minimize the impact of the crisis on children – including in the life-saving areas of health, nutrition, immunization, water and sanitation, as well as in the future of children, through education and child protection.
#ChildrenofSyria is the microsite dedicated to the 2 million children of Syria who now live as refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey, Egypt and other countries in North Africa.
