In 2015, more than one million refugees and migrants crossed the Mediterranean, arriving on the shores of Europe, of which it has been estimated that around 253,700 – or one in four – were children. UNICEF states that the issue is getting more critical, because the number of children among refugees and migrants – now more than one child in three adults – continues to grow. According to national sources, in Macedonia, this ratio was 37 percent in December, compared to 23 percent in September, while in Serbia, in December, 36 percent were children compared to 27 percent in September. In the last three months, the number of migrant children has increased continuously. On this topic, we are talking to Professor Dragi ‪‎Zmijanac, President/CEO & Co-Founder of the First Children’s Embassy in the World- ‪‎Megjashi.
