The outlook for children in 2022 is stark. Today, a record number of children - 1 in 6 - are living in war zones the world has all but forgotten. This is not just another news story.
It has been 6 months since the escalation of the international armed conflict in Ukraine on the 24th February earlier this year. 6 months on and there is still no safe place for children in Ukraine. The war in Ukraine had caused the fastest and largest displacement of people in Europe since World War II.
But sadly, Ukraine is just one country where children are living in a war zone. There are children and their families in countries like Syria and Yemen - who also have been affected by a conflict - cannot be forgotten. They need our help today, more than ever.
Conflict is raging across the world: from Syria to Yemen, to Ukraine. And there’s no end in sight. The war on children continues.
They are on the frontline of an unprecedented global humanitarian crisis and their right to survival, protection and education is under immediate threat. Conflict means hunger, poverty, danger, no healthcare, loss of education and fear.
