Around the world, there are too many refugee children who haven’t just lost their homes, they’re also losing their futures every single day.
More than half of all the refugee children in the world – 3.5 million children – aren’t in school.
“Action Against Hunger UK, ActionAid UK, Christian Aid, Save the Children UK and the International Rescue Committee UK strongly condemn the attacks carried out on 25 August. We are deeply concerned by the spiralling violence that has followed across Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State. We are also concerned about reports of extensive loss of life of civilians and the immense suffering that is producing the displacement of thousands of people from their homes and livelihoods.
Save the Children is calling on the international community to fully fund a £58 million emergency appeal to help the newly arrived Rohingya in southern Bangladesh
Tuesday, 12 September 2017 - 1:23pm
Almost 300,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh in the past two and a half weeks following a rapid and alarming escalation of violence in Myanmar's northern Rakhine State, including disturbing reports of hundreds of people, including children, being killed.
Save the Children International's chief executive Helle Thorning-Schmidt said:
"Save the Children expresses its deep concern for all civilians and especially children caught up in conflict in Rakhine state, Myanmar, which has escalated rapidly since August 25. We are particularly disturbed by reports of children being killed or injured.

EN DEUDA CON LA NIÑEZ
Al menos 700 millones de niños y niñas en el mundo —y probablemente cientos de millones más— han dejado de disfrutar de su niñez demasiado temprano. Esto se debe a una variedad de causas, como enfermedades, conflictos, la violencia extrema, el matrimonio infantil, el embarazo precoz, la malnutrición, la exclusión de la educación y el trabajo infantil.
DES ENFANCES VOLÉES
Au moins 700 millions d’enfants à travers le monde (et sans doute des centaines de millions d’autres) sortent de l’enfance trop tôt. Les principales raisons incluent les problèmes de santé, les conflits, la violence extrême, le mariage des enfants, les grossesses précoces, la malnutrition, la privation d’éducation et le travail des enfants.
For at least 700 million children worldwide – and perhaps hundreds of millions more – childhood has ended too soon. The major reasons included poor health, confl ict, extreme violence, child marriage, early pregnancy, malnutrition, exclusion from education and child labor.
A full picture of the trail of destruction left by Cyclone Mora is beginning to emerge, after the storm made landfall on Tuesday in Bangladesh’s southeast, leaving millions of children’s futures at stake.
“The damage and destruction left by the storm is immense, with trees uprooted, homes and crops destroyed, roads and telecommunications interrupted and a large number of schools damaged,” Save the Children Country Director in Bangladesh, Mark Pierce said.
The undersigned humanitarian and development NGOs operating in Kachin and Northern Shan States in Myanmar are gravely concerned about the continually escalating armed conflict and the severely deteriorating security situation for the civilian population in Kachin and Northern Shan States.

ASEAN Common Framework on School Safety
Dear EiE colleagues,
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Introduction Nearly 250 million children live in regions affected by conflict. In all parts of the world the number of refugees, internally displaced people and asylum seekers are on the rise as a result of violence and persecution,2 and the total number is now higher than at any time since the end of the Second World War.
Yangon, Myanmar, 4 November 2015 - As Myanmar heads for a historic election on 8th November, UNICEF and Save the Children are calling on potential future leaders to prioritise children and commit to provide them with a fair start in life.
The two children’s organisations have been actively engaging with more than 80 political parties to urge them to prioritise children in their manifestos. As a result, 37 parties have included children in their campaigns, particularly by highlighting education, health, nutrition, social welfare and protection.
Yangon, Myanmar, 23 September 2015 – Over 10 million children in Myanmar still live under the poverty line of US$2 per day, said UNICEF and Save the Children.
The child-focused agencies warned today that, despite recent reforms benefiting children, insufficient investments in essential services mean families are unable to afford the out-of-pocket expenditure needed to seek primary health, education and protection services.
Save the Children receives million dollar donation from the Australian government and warns that up to 100,000 children don’t have sufficient food and access to clean water in flood-hit Myanmar
Save the Children has received a $1 million dollar donation from the Australian government to help children affected by the monsoons floods in Myanmar – a third of Australia’s $3 million response to the devastating floods.
The $1 million donation will be used to support 50,000 people including 20,000 children in Magway Region and Chin State.
