Registering the new born babies of IDPs

Sweet baby Zain, only 5 months young, waits in her mother’s arms to receive her birth certificate. Mother Amina visited one of our community centers in Syria seeking legal assistance to register her new baby with the civil registry. Amina and her family were displaced from Aleppo and have been living in shelters since the beginning of the war. Due to the crises, many children are born with no official registration and risk becoming stateless. Our colleagues in Syria provide legal counseling to displaced people in need of assistance just like Zain and Amina.
