Five years ago, as a result of factors like corruption, injustice, inequality, human rights violations and poverty a war began in Syria. This war has caused one of the worst refugee crisis of the century.
Since the beginning on the war, thousands of families have fled searching for a decent living environment, while other families have stayed in the country. According to Aldeas Infantiles SOS, it is been estimated that there are 7.6 million Syrians that have been internally displaced and nearly 4 million of people have been displaced or are displaced by neighboring countries.
Unfortunately, the main victims of the war are the children. Many children have only knew the war, other have had to leave the school and the woman can’t give birth in hospitals because they are destroyed or they have no medical staff. Worst of all, are the thousands of violations, abuses and child exploitation that many children have suffered because they have remained alone and have no protection.
From the beginning of the Syrian conflict, Aldeas Infantiles SOS has worked to give their help to families and children that are in Syria or that have been displaced to some of the countries where Aldeas Infantiles SOS are present. But they not only are giving response to urgent needs, they are also helping unaccompanied children to be reunited with their families.

For that reason, Pc Componentes is offering its customers the possibility to donate 1 euro in their purchases in order to help Aldeas Infantiles to protect these children from the effects of the war and displacement.
