After five years of war, millions of Syrian children have known nothing but conflict.
Some are caught in a warzone in Syria. Some are living in refugee camps in surrounding countries. Some have taken dangerous trips to Europe. All are in need of our support.
UNICEF staff are on the ground in Syria distributing life-saving supplies to children and families caught in the crosshairs of conflict. In Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, we are providing Syrian refugees with clean water, vaccines, education, psychosocial support, winter supplies and protection. UNICEF is also working to support European countries that are receiving refugee and migrant children and families and providing safe spaces for children to play and receive psychosocial support.
