Bombs, violence and hunger – millions of children suffer!
help now and Save children’s lives!
In Ukraine alone, around 7.5 million children are at risk of serious physical and psychological injury and displacement following the escalation of hostilities. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case: whether in the Middle East conflict, wars in Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan, or in many African and Asian regions – around the world, approximately 426 million children are growing up in armed conflicts. That is almost every fifth child! Their everyday lives are marked by bombs, violence and hunger. Countless families have to leave their homes and are on the move or live in simple tents in refugee camps. These children need our help now!
Olha (6) from Ukraine is one of the countless children growing up in war and conflict zones. She experienced unimaginable horrors: while playing near her home, a mine exploded and she suffered severe internal injuries as well as injuries to her hand. Although an emergency operation was conducted, not all of the splinters could be removed. Since then, Olha has to live with the physical consequences. Olha is attending a Save the Children community centre and loves the learning and play activities. She also receives psychosocial support to help her come to terms with her traumatic experiences.
