Children in Crisis

2022 has seen its fair share of global issues. Right now, there are more refugees and displaced people in the world than at any other time in history with 82.4 million people who have been forced from their homes.

As the conflict in Ukraine enters its second month, the humanitarian catastrophe in Afghanistan is quickly becoming a forgotten crisis. The gains achieved over the past two decades – including women’s rights and education for all - are now at risk more than ever. 

Five years on since the conflict in Marawi, thousands remain displaced in evacuation centres, squatter settlements or temporary shelters, as repair and reconstruction works were disrupted by the pandemic. Children have borne the brunt of this urban conflict and have grown up or are growing up amidst  such hardship.
