Spare a thought for babies born into danger this Xmas

More than 16 million babies were born in conflict zones in 2015 – 1 in 8 of all births worldwide this year.

In conflict-affected countries such as Afghanistan, the Central African Republic and Syria, or on perilous journeys to escape fighting, new-born children and their mothers face enormous risks. Pregnant mothers are in danger of giving birth without medical help and in unsanitary conditions.

In addition to conflict, poverty, climate change and lack of opportunities are making children increasingly vulnerable and have pushed millions on dangerous journeys away from their homes.
