A Save the Children investigation shows that over the past five years, the number of children in three west African nations who have been displaced from their homes has increased fivefold due to escalating violence. The UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM), national governments, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provided data to the child rights organization, which used it to determine how many children had been internally displaced in Mali, Burkina Faso, and Niger during the previous five years. As a result, the number of kids who had to leave their homes has increased dramatically, rising from about 321,000 in 2019 to almost 1.8 million at this time. Approximately 53,000 children have been forcibly removed from their homes since the beginning of 2023. Approximately 90% of children have stayed inside their country of origin.
