The nearly six million syrian children have been born since the start of the conflict


Almost 90 percent of syrians said that the children are the main victims of the conflict taking place in the country for the past nine years, according to find a research of Gallup International/GERMANY International picked up by the United Nations children’s fund (UNICEF).

The work, which was attended by more than 3,500 syrians, and seeks to give a voice to the families, and highlights the impact on children of war and conflict, to help you determine the best way to respond to the needs of the families identified to be able to get on with it.

“In the survey, they came to tell us how the war has affected you directly, and how it has changed the lives of their children. Just tell how they survived during some of the war’s most brutal in recent history,” he said, the regional director of UNICEF for the middle East and north Africa, and Ted Chaiban.

For example, according to the survey, 93 per cent of the households in syria, indicates that the harm to the mental health of their children is “so great”, as well as physical injury and, in general, people who have children is “significantly” less optimistic about the future of the children of Syria, as compared to those who do not have children, or who have not been directly affected.

UNICEF pointed out that in the war against children in Syria has been one of the most “brutal” in recent history. The nearly six million syrian children have been born since the start of the financial crisis. Don’t know about anything else but war and displacement. On average, about every ten hours, and a child in Syria, he was put to death because of the violence and more than 2.5 million children have been uprooted and forced to flee to neighbouring countries in search of safety.

In addition to this, the research has also been directed to the education of the children, and points out that more than half of the respondents indicated that corruption in the schools in your area. In fact, the study has identified education as the greatest challenge for the families and for Syria, of poverty, access to health care, and the care of orphan children.

In this regard, they were asked about the main priorities of the child, report it on your return to the classroom, followed by access to health care services and the care of orphan children. In some parts of Syria, with more than half of the respondents said that at least one of their children are out of school.

But, there are 2.8 million syrian children out of school, an estimated five million children inside Syria and in neighbouring countries continue to study, in spite of the difficulties. This is thanks in no small part to the efforts of the faculty, the staff, the allies in the field, and with the support of donors and UNICEF.

“To the extent that donors are gearing up for another conference in Brussels in order to help the syrian families, we would like to thank all of our donors for their unprecedented generosity. Their support has been instrumental in helping the syrian children to continue their studies, highlighted Chaiban.

UNICEF needs to 682 million dollars (us $ 606 million) for programmes within the country and in neighbouring countries. “We are still calling on donors to maintain their support for the children, the syrians, inside Syria and in neighbouring countries, for the children to be able to recover from the years of schooling they have missed, or they can continue their studies,” said Chaiban, who has been the pandemic of coronavirus has been dealt with in the programmes of learning centres supported by the organisation.


Outside of the context of children, the survey, which was also the syrians who live in Jordan and Lebanon found that the majority of the participants have experienced the impact of “severe” in the conflict, they or their immediate family, and the displacement, loss of income, or imprisonment.

In addition, more than half of the respondents inside Syria say that you are a member of your family were injured in the conflict, while almost half have been witness to the arrest of a member of your family.

“What is clear is that the wounds are deep, and that the impact on the mental health of syrians is terrible. We also know from this research that the education of children and poverty are two of the most important issues and challenges that they face,” was the excavation of a trench Chaiban.
