More than four million refugees of the Syrian Civil War have left the country during the course of the war. Most of them went to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, while thousands ended up in more distant countries like Europe, North Africa and the Persian Gulf. As of December 2015, Turkey was the world’s biggest refugee hosting country with close to 2.5 million Syrian refugees. Syrians fleeing conflict need all the basics to sustain their lives: food, clothing, health assistance, shelter, and household and hygiene items. They also need reliable supplies of clean water, as well as sanitation facilities. Children need a safe environment and the chance to go to school. They are particularly vulnerable and open to abuse and exploitation in unfamiliar and overcrowded conditions. Many refugee children have to work to support their families with little pay. This is not a choice, but a coping mechanism that signals desperation. In addition, Syrian refugee children are also at risk for a range of mental health issues. These children need protection and assistance to overcome the pain, the sadness and unpleasant feelings they have.
