Children with disabilities are among some of the most vulnerable populations in the international arena.

In times of conflict, poverty, and instability these populations face not only a lack of recognition from general society, but they also endure supreme obstacles for survival.

Child refugees with disabilities face especially difficult circumstances.

Many programs and efforts aimed at providing refugee assistance tend to overlook the particular needs of children with disabilities. This oversight is visible across several sectors – health, education, shelter, food and income generation, just to name a few.

In these pages you wil learn about the Iraqi refugee situation, the specifics of refugees in Jordan, and how refugees with disabilities are either accommodated, or virtually disappear.
