World Vision continues to respond to the pressing needs of refugee children

Like Jiger and Ruma, almost 400,000 of children were displaced by the violence that erupted in Rakhine State, Myanmar. As part of World Vision’s emergency response Child Friendly Spaces are set up to provide children, a safe place where they get the opportunity to express themselves through art, play and also connect with other children facing similar distressing experiences. 4,000 children, affected by the crisis, have benefited from the 40 Child Friendly Spaces (CFS) established by World Vision within the camps. These Child Friendly Spaces are places that enable children to deal with their grief and loss caused by the violence and facilitate in bringing them back to a sense of normalcy. The care and protection of children is one of our priories during a crisis.
