    More numbers to be aware of:

    About 1/2 of all refugees are children. More than 4 million children are now affected by the conflict, which is entering its 3rd year. Within Syria, 3.1 million children are at risk.

    Nearly 2 million Syrian children have dropped out of school since the last school year—representing some 40% of all students registered in grades 1-9.

    In 2013, just 15 percent of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon were studying in formal or non-formal classrooms. In Iraq, nine out of 10 refugee children living in host communities are out of school. In Jordan, about 3/4 of Syrian school-aged children are out of school. Of the 30,000 school-aged children who live in the Za’atari Refugee Camp on the Syrian border, 12,000 are registered for school.

    UNICEF has helped mobilize what is now the largest humanitarian operation in history—supplying food, water, education, clothing and critical immunizations to families and children in Syria and neighboring countries. More than 2.3 million children across the region have been vaccinated against measles. Over 450,000 children have received counseling. UNICEF and its partners are launching a home-based learning program for 400,000 children who cannot attend school because of the conflict.

    For the children of Syria, what's at stake isn't politics; it's their future. When the fighting ends, will these children be healthy, educated and strong enough to rebuild their lives? You can help. Join UNICEF in its work to deliver the health care, education and other services these children urgently need.

    Lord have mercy on us. The entire population of the state of Kentucky being displaced brings home the havoc that is, and that would be were we to invade.
