Sedra (7), Za'atari Refugee Camp, Jordan

Of the nearly 12 million people displaced by Syria’s war, more than half are children. They arrive in neighbouring countries with little more than the clothes on their backs and memories of friends and home.

In Jordan, children like Sedra, take refuge with their families in a crowded camp or suffocating accommodations, mourning lost loved ones and yearning for their former lives.

As COVID-19 limits life-saving aid from reaching children in already dangerous places, children in crisis, like Sedra, urgently need someone like you.

When ordinary people come together, we make an extraordinary impact. Unleash what’s inside you to protect the most vulnerable children, in the most dangerous places and situations. Unleash your Hidden Hero.

Schools have been destroyed. Eight gruelling years of war in Syria has robbed the next generation of their right to an education.

<br>Helen Clark advocates for the rights of children in crisis.

Former Prime Minister, and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator Helen Clark, visited projects in Afghanistan to see the impact that violence, drought and flooding is having on children's lives.

Helen met with families that are struggling with the devasting reality of having to decide their daughter's fate to manage financially. "I've seen that there are women who care deeply about their daughters and are under great pressure to allow them to be, in effect, sold into early marriage because that would relieve some financial difficulties" shared Helen.

Early marriage violates girls’ rights to health, education and future opportunities.
