Including the provision of adequate water supplies, latrines, and hygiene promotion activities.  World-renowned singer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Ricky Martin calls for increased focus on safeguarding the futures of millions of children affected by the Syria conflict, whose lives have been shaped by displacement, violence and a persistent lack of opportunities. Around 1.1 million Syrians have sought refuge in Lebanon since the start of the crisis in 2011, more than half of them are children. Child refugees are particularly at risk of exploitation and abuse, with large numbers being left with no choice but to go out to work, rather than attend school.  The deteriorating economic situation for Syrian refugees has dramatically exacerbated the problem of child labour in Lebanon. Adding to the psychological distress already affecting many of the children who have fled conflict and violence at home is the challenge associated with some of the worst forms child labour such as working on construction sites, which can cause long-term developmental and psychological damage as well as physical harm.

«He encontrado a niños que se han visto forzados a convertirse en los que ganan el pan para sus familias, trabajando hasta 12 horas al día», dijo este viernes la estrella al concluir su visita, según un comunicado del Fondo de las Naciones Unidas para la Infancia (Unicef).

Martin recordó que cerca de 2,8 millones de niños no están escolarizados en la región y pidió al mundo que haga más para «proteger a los menores de la explotación y para facilitarles el acceso a entornos seguros en los que puedan ser educados y empoderados«.

El cantante de Puerto Rico dijo estar impactado por la historia de Batoul, una chica de 11 años de la ciudad siria de Homs, la cual tiene que trabajar a cambio de agua y un techo, y junto a su madre y sus dos hermanas son las que mantienen a la familia de 13 miembros.

«Estoy inspirado por el coraje de estos niños (…). Invertir en su presente es invertir en el futuro de la región».

Just spent 3 days at the lebanese/syrian border working with @unicef. This amazing organization is doing an incredible job providing education to more than 150,000 Syrian refugee children. Still, there are hundreds of thousands of kids that have not been able to get this very important/basic right. We must end child labor now. The word «refugee» must not lose its meaning. Syrian refugees around the world need protection. #UnicefLebanon Acabamos de pasar tres días en la frontera entre Syria y el Líbano con @UNICEF. Esta maravillosa organización está haciendo un increíble trabajo proporcionando educación a más de 150.000 niños refugiados sirios. Desafortunadamente aun hay cientos de miles de niños que no han podido recibir este derecho básico y han sido obligados a trabajos forzados. La palabra «refugiados» no puede perder su significado. Los refugiados sirios en todas partes del mundo necesitan protección. #uniceflebanon. @uniceflebanon #ChildrenofSyria
