Who are those Children in Crisis?

Syrian Refugee Crisis 

Humanitarian needs in Syria and the region have increased significantly since the beginning of the crisis, with 12.2 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, including more than 5.6 million children.

As of September 2016, there are close to 4.8 million Syrian refugees hosted in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt.


Growing numbers of Europe-bound migrants are still turning to Egypt as a departure point for their perilous sea journey. In the first 6 months of 2016, at least 7000 migrants and asylum seekers have crossed to Europe from Egypt.

In Egypt, there are 119,665 registered refugees

The deteriorating economic situation in Egypt, coupled with inflation, devaluation of the Egyptian Pound, and the increased joblessness have exerted greater social and economic stresses on the refugees and their host communities in the country.

We are reaching almost 7,000 Syrian refugee and host Egyptian children and adults through support from the European Union with interventions in the areas of education, child protection, shelter, hygiene and sanitation, livelihoods and psychosocial support in Damietta, Obour and Qalubia.

Living conditions for refugees are very difficult in Jordan. Often there is limited access to basic resources such as food and water. With over 75 per cent of the population estimated to be women and children;

They desperately need our assistance.

We set up operations in Jordan in August 2016. Our programming is focussed on education with daycare facilities serving 300 Syrian and Jordanian children in Mafraq that will provide early childhood activities, parenting support, training for teachers and educational material.

Making Sure that no child is left behind

Plan International’s disaster response work focuses on children’s urgent needs, such as food and water. We then prioritize child protection and education, to help re-establish a sense of security and normality.

And now this Christmas, you can help multiply this impact, helping more Children in Crisis and ensuring a safe life ahead for all.
