Childhood Under Fire

The impact of two years of conflict in Syria

March 2013


From the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, children have been its forgotten victims – facing death, trauma and suffering, and deprived of basic humanitarian aid.

Childhood under Fire shows how the conflict is affecting all aspects of children’s lives.

It goes on to look at the challenges in the humanitarian response, and puts forward recommendations to all parties to the conflict,  The United Nations, donor governments, agencies delivering humanitarian assistance, and governments of neighbouring  countries.
