(Evangelical Focus)— There are 50 million “uprooted” children in the world. This is the main idea a new study by UNICEF has made public this week: “Uprooted: The Growing Crisis for Refugee and Migrant Children.”
These are some of the main findings:
– 31 million children live outside their country of birth, including 11 million child refugees and asylum-seekers.
– In 2015, just two countries—Syria and Afghanistan—accounted for nearly half of all child refugees under UNHCR’s mandate; about three-quarters of all child refugees under UNHCR’s mandate came from only 10 countries.
