The United States government has suspended the refugee resettlement program. Refugee children have been terrorized, they are not terrorists. More than half of the refugees are children, whose only chance for survival and a better future relies on access to safety.
The world is facing its worst humanitarian crisis since World War II - there are more people fleeing war and persecution than ever in history, and the majority are from Syria.
Save the Children is committed to continuing to help millions of refugee children, regardless of ethnicity, religion or any other factor.

Search. Rescue. Save.
Save the Children is continuing to respond to the Child Refugee Crisis. To address the rising tide of lives lost at sea, we’re now launching a lifesaving ship with special services for children. With your help, we aim to reach up to 20,000 children and others at risk of drowning in the next 15 months.
The world is witnessing a rapid escalation in the number of people forced to flee from conflict, wars and persecution – moving toward countries of transit, seeking safety and relief of suffering.
SAVE THE CHILDREN'S RESPONSE
Save the Children has been responding to crises around the world for almost 100 years. We quickly moved to meet the growing needs of children and families on the move, allocating funding from our Children’s Emergency Fund to respond to the crisis in several locations. Here are examples of countries where our relief efforts are underway:
Since the beginning of the conflict, Syrian children have been the forgotten victims of the horrific war. Today, over 5.8 million children are in need of assistance, including over 2.3 million Syrian children who have sought refuge in neighboring countries. These children are at risk of becoming a "lost generation" and cannot be ignored. We must save Syria's children.
Refugees have been arriving in Egypt in increasing numbers since late 2014. Save the Children is providing children and families with child protection interventions such as child-friendly spaces and early childhood care for children under 5.
We are providing children with psychosocial and emotional support and holding art, music, drama and dancing sessions for children. We are distributing school kits and holding Arabic, English, Maths and French classes.
Save the Children has conducted humanitarian programs in Greece since 2015. We currently work in more than 20 sites in Greece and have reached almosts 500,000 children and adults with aid. We support shelters, aid unaccompanied children and provide pregant women and mothers with the resources they need to protect their children's nutrition.
Lebanon hosts the largest number of Syrian refugees relative to its population in the region, with almost 1.2 million registered Syrian refugees, constituting one-fourth of the country’s population. Some 53 percent of these refugees are children. We have reached over 530,000 Syrian refugees here, including 313,000 children, with critical protection, education, food and shelter assistance.
Violence, food shortages and economic disparities have forced more than 2.3 million South Sudanese to flee their homes, often searching for safety in neighboring Uganda — a country already hosting more than 1 million refugees. Save the Children's Emergency Health Unit has been deployed to bolster our existing humanitarian response in Uganda. We are present in two refugee settlements in Northern Uganda, providing health care services.
