Not just numbers
A survey on the impact of 9 years of war in Syria
The war on children in Syria has been one of the most brutal in recent history. Nearly 6 million Syrian children were born since the crisis began. They know nothing but war and displacement. On average, a child in Syria has been killed every 10 hours due to violence, and more than 2.5 million children have been uprooted and forced to flee to neighbouring countries in search of safety.
Syrians, however, are not just numbers. They have voices and opinions and these voices should not go unnoticed nor unheard.
UNICEF adopted results from a recently conducted Gallup International/ORB International opinion survey. The face-to-face survey asked Syrian people in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon about the greatest challenges and concerns they and their children face nearly a decade since the war began.
Covering 3,500 Syrians, the survey aims to give voice to Syrian families highlighting the impact of war and conflict and help shaping how to best respond to the needs that families identified moving forward.
