The conflict in Syria has killed more than 6,500 children, left three million inside Syria in need of aid, and turned nearly one million into refugees. Some have been disabled, mutilated, sexually abused, tortured in government detention and recruited by armed groups, at as young as age 12. Many have been deprived of their education. Many more have witnessed violence. Meet a few of these children as they try to overcome their trauma.
