Join the 'No Lost Generation' social media campaign and help ensure that more Syrian children – victims of war - have access to schools, protection and psychological support. You can support the campaign by sharing #ChildrenOfSyria and #NoLostGeneration on your Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The campaign is organised by the UN agency for children (UNICEF), the UN refugee agency (UNCHR), Save the Children and World Vision and endorsed by the European Union.
The conflict in Syria has affected more than 5 million children, forcing them to flee from their homes, drop out of school and struggle for their survival amidst hostility, poverty and insecurity. Unless we extend a helping hand, these children will become a lost generation that knows nothing but war, trauma, disillusionment and ignorance. This would have profound consequences for Syria and the entire region, undermining recovery and perpetuating security risks way beyond the region.
The European Commission is working hard to mitigate the consequences and risks of the Syrian crisis, putting a special emphasis on support for children in its humanitarian assistance.
