The refugee crisis, millions of children have been forced out of their homes

69 million people are listed as refugees this year -more than the population of Britain writes ‘The Independent’.

Wars, natural disasters and political crises have forced millions of children around the world to abandon their homes.

Last year, about 13 million refugee children were registered as unprotected – at risk of facing violence, abuse, and other exploitation. UNICEF has published a series of photos to mark the World Refugee Days.

The large amount of people leaving their homes because of conflicts and persecution was higher than 70.8 million in 2018, and this year 69 million refugees left their home.

UNICEF data shows that: In the first 4 months of 2019, 17,300 unaccompanied and separated children were recorded in Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
