UNICEF works to protect Syrian Children Refugees

(Dp-News - Unicef)
United Nations- UNICEF is working to protect children, restore a regular routine and address the emotional wounds of conflict:

• Children receive critical care and support to deal with emotional problems. Whether through group therapy or counselling sessions, addressing the impact war has had on a child’s emotional well-being is a critical component of the support.

• In partnership with the NGO Save the Children, UNICEF operates 10 Child Friendly Spaces – safe places in Za’atari where children can play, socialize and otherwise begin to live like children again.

• UNICEF has built two large playgrounds and fenced off an area in which teenagers play football.

• Recreational kits and school-in-a-box materials are being distributed.

The Child Friendly Spaces also offer support for others sheltering in the camp. There are parenting classes, community group meetings and health information sessions, and more plans laid for uncertain future

UNICEF is recruiting volunteers in Za’atari to work on community child protection committees. The committees refer vulnerable children to UNICEF and its partners, who, in turn, link them to education, health and other urgently needed services.

With more families arriving every day, UNICEF is planning to quadruple the number of safe places to keep up with the growing needs.

The United Nations refugee agency in Geneva said the number of people fleeing Syria had increased almost exponentially, from 18,500 in June to 35,000 in July to 102,000 in August. Roughly 2,000 Syrians were crossing daily into Jordan alone, trying to evade air and artillery attacks on towns near the southern border, said Adrian Edwards, a spokesman for the refugee agency.

The exodus has pushed the number of Syrian refugees to more than a quarter of a million, Edwards said. Of the total, Jordan now has more than 85,000 refugees and Turkey has more than 78,000, including those who have registered or are awaiting registration. Many more refugees have not registered, and both countries count far greater numbers.

The agency said that more than 10,000 were waiting to cross into Turkey.
