More than 7.5 million children are affected by the brutal conflict in Syria. Children have been put at risk by unrelenting violence, crumbling infrastructure, ruined schools and hospitals and shortages of essential supplies. Refugee camps in the countries bordering Syria are overflowing. There are now close to 2 million child refugees who have fled Syria.
UNICEF has mobilized the largest humanitarian operation in history, supplying food, water, education, clothing and critical immunizations in Syria.
The Foundation donated $6,000 to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF designated for the Syria Children Relief.
