Kids fleeing #SouthSudan collect blankets and other #humanitarian aid from Red Cross volunteers in northern Uganda.
51% of the world’s #refugees are children. It’s a staggering number, considering there are more people displaced from their homes now than at any other point in history.
Children forced to flee their country experience incredible hardship, but they also prove their bravery and resilience--over and over again. They care for their siblings. They carry heavy loads. And they smile, just like the kids in this photo. These smiles are essential to the adults in their lives, who see hope in the children's faces.
On #WorldRefugeeDay and every day, global #RedCross and #RedCrescent teams are helping to meet kids' needs through aid such as food, water, shelter, medical care, and reconnecting families. #refugee #CroixRouge #CruzRoja 📸 by Tommy Trenchard/Panos/IFRC ✏️ by Jenelle Eli
