George and Amal Clooney to put 3000 Syrian refugee children through school – Telegraph.co.uk
George and Amal Clooney plan to help nearly 3,000 Syrian refugee children go to school this year in Lebanon, where Amal is from.
More than one million Syrians – including over 500,000 children – are registered as refugees in Lebanon after fleeing the devastating war that has lasted more than six years in neighboring Syria.
Unicef, the children’s charity, said Monday that close to 200,000 Syrian refugee children in Lebanon are out of school. Human Rights Watch estimates the number at more than 250,000.
