More Than 50 Million Refugees Worldwide, Half Of Them Children
The United Nations’ refugee agency, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), is out with a dismal new report that shows global refugee numbers are their highest level since World War II, with more than 50 million people on the run. In some conflicts, as many as half the refugees are children. Many of the displaced children travel alone or in groups, which puts them at extra risk of falling into the hands of human traffickers. Children younger than 18 years old represented 50% of the overall refugee population, the report says, the highest figure in ten years.
