The numbers of Syrian children affected by the brutal war ravaging their country are truly disheartening. According to UN agencies, one million children, three-quarters of them under age 11, have had to flee their country since the conflict began in 2011.
On Friday, the number of Syrian child refugees hit 1 million. With hundreds of thousands out of school, traumatized by violence, and seeing little hope of a quick return home, what will happen to Syria’s Lost Generation?
President Obama will deliver a prime time address on Syria Tuesday evening. In the meantime, a humanitarian organization headquartered in Atlanta is providing assistance to those fleeing the country in large numbers.
