Children's Day 2017

More than half a million refugee children facing urgent physical and psychological needs are living in appalling conditions in Bangladesh. Children have witnessed and fled extreme violence and need special care and protection. Most children fleeing Myanmar have had terrifying experiences. They have witnessed the killing, beating or abuse of loved ones, the destruction of villages, and have taken long and dangerous journeys to escape violence. They need special help to handle what they have seen and to make them feel safe. In Bangladesh, World Vision is one of six agencies responding directly to the needs of child refugees through psychosocial support, life skills training, and resilience programming.
