Refugee on the Child Literature

According to the UN Refugee Organization; the largest refugee movement in history has taken place
in the last 8 years. In 2018, more than 13 million children (under 18 years) were accepted as legal

and permanent protection program for Syrian refugees in 22 camps with AFAD provided protection
and support applications. As of 2018, the number of foreign refugees in Turkey has more than 3.5

countries relevant.. The insufficient nutrition status and low living conditions of the migrant children in
the crowded camps require psychological support. Considering these facts, the basis of our project is

activities for their socialization with their peers. In this context, 42 young people from 6 different
countries will plan raising awareness activities on the needs of migrant children. Project participants
will produce information materials for immigrants / refugees to ensure the inclusion of children's
social life , for example, to carry out activities and will share their experiences in the 6-day event in
