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

They have known war and loss and hunger.

One 12 year old boy remembers his last days in Syria

(SOUNDBITE)(Arabic) 12-YEAR OLD SYRIAN REFUGEE, SAMI, SAYING:

"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.

"When there was no food, my siblings got very hungry and they would come to me or my mom and say, "mom we are hungry, we want food."

Rights group 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.

SOUNDBITE (English) REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF SAVE THE CHILDREN, MIDDLE EAST/EURASIA, ROGER HEARN, SAYING:

" What we are seeing, what other UN agencies and INGOs (International Non-Governmental Organizations) are seeing is a growing incidence of hunger amongst the population's children."

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.
