When it comes to conflict, children are always amongst the most vulnerable. As a conflict evolves, an escalation in violence and extreme poverty become prevalent. Right now, approximately 7 million Syrian children are living in poverty.
Due to the destruction of educational and essential child services, there has been an increase in child marriages and labour, allowing abuse and exploitation to flourish.
6.1 million children and educational staff are in need of support.
No lost generation
We strongly believe that education is vital to the development and well-being of children. Without educational needs being met during this prolonged crisis, an entire generation is at risk of destitution.
Islamic Relief has been providing educational support in Syria since 2012, contributing to improving the education and individual development of thousands of children.
Your donations will help save a generation of Syrian children by keeping them in schools and preventing early marriages and forced labour.
