Children are the most vulnerable of all in the midst of a crisis. According to a UNICEF report, in 2015 alone, one in every four-asylum seeker during what has become the largest ongoing migration crisis since the Second World War has been a child. They were exposed to some of the most treacherous and challenging circumstances during a journey their parents chose to take to flee war and other dire conditions in their respective countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. About 10,000 unaccompanied child refugees have disappeared upon arriving in Europe, according to the European Union’s criminal intelligence agency. The majority of them are feared to have fallen into the hands of organised trafficking syndicates.
