Children and families take refuge in Armenia
More than 100,000 ethnic Armenians have been forced to flee their homes, including 30,000 children.
Since the end of September, more than 100,000 ethnic Armenians, including 30,000 children have sought refuge in Armenia, leaving behind their homes, schools and everything familiar to them.
Children bear the heaviest toll of humanitarian crises. Access to services including psychosocial support, education, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene and child protection is critical to ensuring children can get the support they need and overcome the distress caused by displacement.
