Children ‘wasting away’ in dangerous Syrian camps

Tens of thousands of children are “wasting away” amid widespread violence and threats in two refugee camps in northeast Syria, Save the Children says, and it is “more urgent than ever” that foreign governments repatriate their citizens living there

The scale of the violence, hardship, deprivation and trauma that children living in these camps experience every day cannot be overstated.

Children, many of them unaccompanied, make up roughly two-thirds of the estimated 60,000 people living in the camps.
