Help Syrian child refugees
Desperate families forced to leave Syria by the long war are heading to neighbouring countries and to Europe, causing the continent’s worst refugee crisis in 60 years. Those children who survive the perilous journey arrive physically and mentally exhausted. Due to their age and vulnerability, children continue to face extreme challenges once they settle into safer grounds; the displacement has severe impacts on their health, education and well-being.
In Egypt, Plan International is helping Syrian refugee children and their families with child protection, education and psychosocial needs. We’re also renovating and furnishing 40 public schools, besides providing other educational services, in Greater Cairo, Alexandria and Damietta, for Syrian refugee children. This will benefit nearly 60,000 Syrian and Egyptian children over the next 2 years.
Plan International is also working with partners in Syria and Iraq, but we urgently need to upscale our response.
