According to a report by The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), “Nearly 50m #Children Uprooted, migrating in search of a better, safer life.”
This report by UNICEF has shown that “One in every 45 children in the world today is on the move.” The most shocking statistics is that in the past five years, the number of child refuges has risen by 77%!
War, violence, poverty and better lives are some of the factors that have led to this huge scale migration. Violence alone is the cause of uprooting 28 million children.
More than shocking, these statistics are sad and give rise to a bigger question of future. The future of these 50 million children.
