-Aldous Huxley

Nearly 50 million children around the world are fleeing war or extreme poverty. Many of these children are escaping the appalling humanitarian crises in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and South Sudan. This is the worst child refugee crisis since World War II.

Images and the eyes of the children who have experienced such trauma, illustrates a reality that transcends the somber statistic.
