Turkey: How Syrian refugee children rebuild their lives through education

The Syrian war, now in its 10th year, has forced millions to flee their homes. Neighbouring Turkey currently hosts 3.6 million Syrian refugees, over 1.6 million of them children.

Thanks to EU humanitarian funding, UNICEF is providing cash transfers to the families of over 600, 000 refugee children in Turkey who regularly attend school to support them on their path to a brighter future.
