UNICEF: 'Global community has failed' Syrian refugees

This one millionth child refugee is not just another number. This is a real child ripped from home, maybe even from a family, facing horrors we can only begin to comprehend.

We must all share the shame because while we work to alleviate the suffering of those affected by this crisis, the global community has failed in its responsibility to this child.

We should stop and ask ourselves how, in all conscience, we can continue to fail the children of Syria.

– UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake
