Description

Nearly 1 in 5 children globally live in conflict and/or disaster-stricken countries without proper access to quality health services or medication. These innocent and helpless children live everyday fearing gunshots, bombs, death, injury or if their parents or siblings will make it back home safely. Modern warfare spares no one, and leaves children with devastating physical injuries and mental impairments, forced displacements and unnecessary death. Children are the first victims of war. Through Children of War Foundation’s partnership with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, University of Southern California and Shriners Hospital Los Angeles, COFW is able to provide the finest surgeons to children in need of life-saving procedures. They also upgrade hospitals, provide medical education workshops and lectures and deliver life-saving medication, surgical supplies and medical equipment to hospitals. COFW has impacted the lives of 12,000 children in over 40 communities around the world.

Importance Importance

Children have become the silent sufferers of conflict, facing permanent physical and mental damage and death every single day. 72% of child deaths in conflict-stricken countries are due to landmines, explosive remnants of war, air strikes and other explosives, and children are seven times more likely to die from injuries from explosives than adults who are involved with the war. Too many innocent children are dying due to a lack of quality healthcare in their home country. Their survival relies on donations which provide the medical supplies for surgery.

Facts & Stats Facts & Stats
  • Yemen’s current civil war has left more than 11 million children in need of humanitarian aid. It is estimated that around 85,000 children under 5 years old died of severe acute malnutrition between 2015 and 2018
  • An estimated 3.3 million Syrian children are exposed to explosive remnants of war around schools and playgrounds
  • Conflict not only kills and physically and mentally damages people, it also leads to more displacement, more refugees, more poverty, less education, more crime, more child marriage and sexual violence and less life-saving medical assistance
  • In 2018, around 71 million people in the world - 1 in 108 people - were fleeing conflict or oppression, and two thirds of 26 million refugees came from only 5 countries - Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia
  • Half of the refugee population are children
