Transcript of PRESENTATION

Half, or 30 million, are children under the age of 18.
That’s more than every US child ages 0-5 years.

For a child, being displaced means…
• Separation from family and friends
• Disruption of schooling
• Helplessness
• Hopelessness



Today there are 60 million persons displaced from their homes due to war, persecution or natural disasters. Imagine one in every five US residents removed by force or fear for their lives from our communities.
Data from refugee camps reveal:

• 85% of children suffer from severe

• 25% have considered suicide
