Millions of children from Syria have grown up with war. Many have fled violence, from civil war first and then the Islamic State. Along with their families, they often live in overcrowded camps around neighbouring countries, such as Lebanon.
War leaves its mark deeply. Many children suffer trauma. They are long away from school. They miss a normal life – without violence. Camps and villages where they seek refuge are rarely prepared for so many newcomers. With our local partners, we fight for better care and protection of these children.
We provide emergency aid in Syria itself. We provide a safe place for children who have fled to Lebanon. They receive special psychosocial help and education in a child-friendly space.
Together with their families and communities, they can process their tough experiences and learn to deal with their new circumstances. They can also make up missed school lessons.
In Lebanon, we take a stand to protect and educate vulnerable children who have fled war. Join our fight.
Together with experienced partners we are working towards a world without child exploitation, where young people can feel safe today and better about tomorrow. Join our fight.
