Every cent counts 2016: Aid for unaccompanied child refugees


Systematic support for children and young people on the run or in the country of arrival in the areas of child protection, health and education.

With these donations, Swiss Solidarity supports partner relief organizations which specialize in the areas of child protection or education and health for children and young people. These actively help children between one and eighteen years of age in their countries of origin or on their escape routes. In Switzerland, some of Swiss Solidarity’s partners are involved in the care of underage asylum seekers. There are also a number of private initiatives which help young people with their integration.
