There are currently 65.6 million people worldwide who have been violently displaced from their homes by conflict. Refugees make up about 34% of this number and more than half of this refugee population are individuals under 18 years of age.

To put this last figure into perspective, the number of young people under 18 who have been violently displaced from home is more than the number of people in the whole state of North Carolina or the entire nation of Greece.
