On 25 April 2018 in the Syrian Arab Republic, children from the Fafin makeshift camp for families displaced from Afrin district. Approximately 4,000 families have settled in a makeshift camp for internally displaced people from Afrin.

In April 2018 in the Syrian Arab Republic, more than 137,000 people from Afrin district have been displaced by escalating violence since 20 January 2018. Many remain displaced after several months, mainly in Tall Refaat, Nubul, Zahra and surrounding villages north of Aleppo city. Many have left most belongings behind. Once well-off families are now sheltering in industrial halls, warehouses and mosques ill-equipped to host large numbers of displaced families. Many families with newborn babies have missed out on vaccinations because of the displacement. “Most people forgot about vaccines at that time.” says Hajer, a health worker formerly based in Afrin and now working with the health teams in Fafin camp. In Kafr Naya, northern Aleppo, some 300 people displaced from Afrin are sheltering in the Kafr Naya School. In Zeyarah village, also in northern Aleppo, another school is now sheltering around 300 children displaced from Afrin and their families. Around 17 schools in northern rural Aleppo being used as collective shelters. UNICEF, with funding from the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), is ensuring that all children displaced from Afrin are protected from preventable diseases and provided with a chance to catch up on their vaccinations. With funding from the European Union (ECHO) and in partnership with UNFPA and the Monastery Saint James the Mutilated, mobile clinics and health workers are providing displaced children and their mothers with primary health care services and lifesaving preventive and curative nutritional interventions.

災難中的兒童

每年都有上百萬名兒童及其家庭因天災人禍而被迫分開,生活經歷翻天覆地的變化,甚至被徹底破壞。對脆弱的兒童來說,衝突、人為災害及影響廣泛的氣候變化正威脅他們的生命。 一直以來,聯合國兒童基金會(UNICEF)都守護着災難中的兒童。

目前,全球約有4100萬名兒童在59個爆發衝突或受災的國家生活,面對各種人道危機。他們無法得到醫療服務、教育、足夠營養及保護。
