More than two million people have fled the violence in Syria, many now living in refugee camps in neighboring countries and more of them are children.

They have known war and loss and hunger. One 12 year old boy remembers his last days in Syria

12-year old Syrian refugee, Sami said:

"In the last three weeks in Syria we were living on bulgur, tomatoes and sometimes there was a car that brought bread but it was very expensive, what can I say, the situation was dark and difficult."

Now in a refugee camp in Jordan he remembers what it was like to go hungry.

Rights group â€˜Save the children released a report called Hunger in a War Zone highlighting child malnutrition, with regional director Roger Hearn saying the situation is getting worse.

Save the Children hopes their findings can help find a better future for those whose young lives have been marked by war and consumed by hunger.
