Violence pushes Syrian families to the borders
Recent escalation in northwest, Syria has devastated the region and displaced some 576,000 children since December last year. As conditions worsen, many families are choosing to face the harrowing journey to seek refuge and safety in Europe.
Many refugees are now concentrated on the border of Turkey and Greece. Families are facing harsh winter conditions and a severe lack of basic facilities.
UNICEF is on the ground, providing essential support to children and families including blankets, shelter, water, hygiene kits and other non-food items.
