A Lost Generation – Children of Syria

For three years, too many innocent people in Syria have suffered - above all the children of Syria

Over one million Syrian children have fled Syria for safety and three million children remain displaced inside the country. The situation for these children is dire. These children have lost their homes, seen their loved ones killed, their schools destroyed and their hopes eroded. They have been physically or psychologically wounded and they are vulnerable to the worst types of exploitation. They remain the most vulnerable victims in the conflict.

Children like three year old Ashraf, who was born on the day the Syria conflict began. For the first year of his life he rarely left his home, some days the bombings were relentless. Terrified, the family escaped leaving their home and everything behind - except for a few precious items. No longer afraid of bombs, Ashraf is still scared at the sound of loud bangs. It will take him and his generation many years to recover.
