Last year, Terre des hommes (Tdh) helped change the lives of over 2.3 million children and their loved ones in 38 countries.

2015 will be remembered particularly for the earthquake in Nepal, as well as for the ongoing Syrian civil war and the resultant refugee crisis. Thousands of children suffered the consequences of these crises and our teams did everything in their power to help them,” said Vito Angelillo, director general of Tdh, in the organisation’s annual report.

While Angelillo hailed the unfailing support of the Swiss population and institutions, he was also concerned that some Swiss politicians sought to “reduce the national development aid budget and introduce tougher conditions for refugees entering the country.” He underlined that these issues were connected: “Inhumane living conditions, humanitarian crises and insufficient opportunities force millions of adults and children to leave their homes. They have no choice but to leave. Reducing development aid only makes this situation worse.”

Despite these difficult conditions, Tdh will not give up. It will continue its efforts to ensure that children around the world are able to live as children, recover from traumatic events and grow.
