The Difference We Make: Middle East and Eurasia Region Annual Report, 2015

Save the Children works in around 120 countries worldwide to achieve breakthroughs in the way the world treats children. In the Middle East and Eurasia region we work in 20 countries.

2015 saw the expansion of Save the Children’s physical operating environment in the Middle East and Eurasia region, with new programmes in four countries, in spite of numerous challenges created by political insecurity and the conflicts in the region. These include the ongoing conflict in Syria, which has had a spillover effect in the entire region; ongoing violence in Iraq; the escalation of the crisis in Yemen, where some 60% of the population were already in need of humanitarian assistance prior to the onset of the war in 2015; the refugee crisis in Europe, with over one million arrivals by sea over the course of the year; and the continued displacement and conflict in Ukraine. All of these crises continue to have a devastating impact on the lives of children in the region.
