Study Hard


Children study at a World Vision Child-Friendly Space in Kodok, South Sudan, which provides displaced children with a space to learn, play, and heal from the experiences of war. An estimated 400,000 children have dropped out of school in South Sudan since the outbreak of conflict in December 2013.

A recent  report notes a new world record high at the end of 2014: 38 million people internally displaced by conflict and violence — a number equal to the populations of New York, London, and Beijing combined. 

The report by the Norwegian Refugee Council says Iraq, South Sudan, Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Nigeria had the most newly displaced people. Alarmingly, more than 90 percent of nations monitored had people displaced for a decade or more, signaling a trend of long-term life disruption.

Some people face multiple displacements — refugees from Syria who had fled to Iraq were displaced again in Iraqi fighting. Palestinian refugees who had fled to Syria and then to Iraq, are being uprooted once more.
