Children and Youth

Throughout the world, wherever there is conflict or poverty, it is most likely the children and adolescents who are the most vulnerable. Their lives are endangered; their education is interrupted, and their health is compromised. Many are left homeless. Safety, play, and recreation are foreign concepts.
