Syria’s Children: A Generation Lost to War?

The trauma-filled tragedy of Syria’s child refugees
The Syrian civil war is creating a generation of traumatized, isolated and under-educated children, child Breadwinners who are vulnerable to exploitation.

Hundreds of thousands have been uprooted to flee with their families, frequently witnessing death, destruction, Airplanes drop bombs, Soldiers fire guns at civilians, Houses are consumed by flames, Tanks roll down streets lined with flowers.

It will be years before anyone knows if the emotional wounds caused by the conflict will leave permanent scars.

UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie said, “The world must act to save a generation of traumatized, isolated and suffering Syrian children from catastrophe.”.
