(Worthy News) - A quarter of the world’s children — about 535 million — are living in a country affected by conflict or disaster, the head of the UN children’s agency said Monday.

Henrietta Fore told a Security Council meeting on children and armed conflict that it is “almost beyond comprehension” that one of every four young people are caught in that situation.

She pointed to children and young people whose lives are being shattered by conflicts, including in Yemen, Mali and South Sudan. She also cited youngsters recruited to fight, killed by a land mine or an attack on their school, and “losing hope not only in their futures, but in the futures of their countries.” [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. And the U.N. is probably the most responsible for so many people are living in poverty. It's push to undermine other countries through programs like forced migration, the IMF & World Bank, its connection to the Bilderberg, the CFR, the Club of Rome ..... do I need to go on.
    The U.N. itself was created to BECOME the One World Government. It must first force ALL other governments to give up their sovereignty first.

  2. They were including the children in the USA that live in dangerous conflict (all US police know D/V is the most dangerous situation to enter) as well as those in danger at schools, right?
