Unicef Executive Director, Anthony Lake said: "Every two seconds, a newborn takes its first breath in the midst of conflict, often in terrifying circumstances and without access to medical care. Too many children are now starting their lives in extreme circumstances - from conflict to natural disasters, poverty, disease or malnutrition. Can there be a worse start in life?"
Many of the babies born into conflict are from families who have fled the violence in Syria and are living as refugees in neighbouring countries.
There are currently 4.3 million Syrian refugees, over half of which are children.
Christian children's charity, Viva works with churches around the world to help children living in conflict.
Kezia McLelland, who works in Lebanon as a Child Protection Consultant at Viva says refugees account for over more than one-quarter of the Lebanese population.
She told Premier: "Children have witnessed a lot of violence back in Syria, but once they are in Lebanon it is a very difficult situation for them as well.
"They live in tents, or towns and cities in crowded conditions and rare access to school. There is an increased risk of physical abuse and violence against children because of the pressure on families."
Viva is working with local churches in Lebanon to create 'child friendly spaces' for refugees.
These areas are designated as safe zones for children to allow them to play and learn with other children without the threat of abuse or violence. Education and psycho-social support are also provided in these areas.
