“We were in the middle of the way when the bomb was dropped so we ran.”
Hasan and his brother Kareem fled Idlib when their school was destroyed by a bomb, killing one of his friends. Their family is now homeless.
The war in Syria is a war on children. As the conflict enters its ninth year, half of all children here have never known anything but war.
Bombs rain down on homes, hospitals and playgrounds. Children have been killed and maimed. Food, water and medicine are in short supply.
Children are growing up in terror and desperation. They have seen and experienced things that no child ever should.
Millions of children have been forced to flee the conflict. Most are now growing up in refugee camps in neighbouring countries.
Thanks to the support of people like you, we’re helping children get life-saving essentials.
And together we’re giving children the chance to play, to learn and to start to recover. And the chance to build a better future.
