30 million children displaced

Over 30 million children are now displaced by war and conflict. «We must increase our efforts to protect, help and bring new opportunities and hope to the youngest and most vulnerable victims of war», says NRC´s Secretary General, Jan Egeland.

Millions of children are attacked, displaced and let down by the international community. We are failing in protecting them from violence and abuse, and we do not provide them with the assistance they need to cope in some of the world’s most hazardous conflict areas», says Secretary General Jan Egeland, urging for humanitarian access to reach more and increased support to scale up humanitarian operations targeting displaced children.

Children in conflict areas also miss out on education, being overrepresented among the children who are not attending school in the world today. A new report from UNESCO shows that children in conflict areas make up 36 percent of all those 58 million children who are out of school in the world today. This is up from 30 percent in 2000.
