Thousands of children are fleeing conflict or disaster to seek safety in Europe. They’re in danger from disease, violence and exploitation and urgently need your help.
More than 220,000 people have arrived in Europe this year, seeking safety and a better future. Three quarters are from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. One in three is a child.
Children and families have been forced to flee conflict and unrest at home, making painful and difficult decisions to leave everything they know. A staggering 2,886 people are already recorded as dead or missing in trying to reach Europe this year; the majority drowning in the Mediterranean. The number keeps going up.
