Azerbaijani refugee kids

Children in Sabirabad Tent Camp No. 1 which accomodates 12,000 Azerbaijani refugees Today, most of these refugees live in mud brick single room structures that they built with their own hands.

One of the greatest tragedies of the plight of refugees is the lack of educational opportunities for children. Many have not had a serious education since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
