The war in Syria is now entering into the fifth year. Children are among the main casualties of the Syrian humanitarian crisis, making up 5.6 million or half of Syrians in need. That’s about the same number as all the children under 18 in Texas. Displaced and refugee children are vulnerable to exploitation, abuse, malnutrition, and illness and are without the familiarity of their homes, schools, or communities.

Global funding for the humanitarian response in Syria has not kept pace with the extensive scale of need. It’s time to ensure that basic needs are being met for the most vulnerable children.

Ask your members of Congress to fully fund refugee and relief accounts and to develop a strategy for the humanitarian crisis in Syria.
