Some 357 million children live in countries affected by armed conflict - and they are the ones who suffer most from the effects of war, violence and genocide.

The fundamental rights of these 357 million children to be protected, educated and live their lives free from fear and trauma are repeatedly violated. Which means our work is needed now more than ever.

The facts and figures speak for themselves…
