No place for children

No place for Children, the last UNICEF report on Syrian children, states that 8.4 million children are affected by the war, 1 in 3 children has been born since the conflict began in 2011 and 151.000 children were born as refugees.

On a smaller scale, Burundian children are suffering violence and uncertainty every day. In the last week, three children were killed. One was a three year old little girl who died in a grenade attack. The total causalities of burundian children is 29 since the beginning of the political crisis. 260.000 is the rough estimate of refugees living in neighbouring countries.

I wonder where children can have the right to a happy childhood in this world.
