Syria: Children who have fled violence need your help.
Six years ago, Syrian people worked, played and raised families – much like we do. Theirs was a vibrant, modern, culture with a rich history. Then the conflict began. People, leading ordinary lives, have been forced to flee for their safety. More than half of these people are children. Bombs have destroyed their homes, businesses, schools and hospitals. 30,000 people suffer violence related trauma injuries every month!
There are an estimated 13.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance because of this conflict*.
World Vision is working in Syria, and in neighbouring countries to help provide essentials to traumatized families. In northern Syria, where the government is not able to provide aid, World Vision and a few other partners are providing 90% of the aid. But, the need is still immense.
Currently World Vision is working to meet the needs of people who have fled recent violence – in and around Aleppo alone by:
- Providing relief items including blankets, mattresses, hygiene kits and heaters to more than 4,600 people
- Providing clean water and sanitation services to 7,000 people
- Supporting primary and mobile health clinics for 3,100 internally displaced people living in camps as well as 12,000 of the host communities and surrounding villages
With the help of donors like you, in 2016 World Vision has reached almost 2.3 million people**. Your donation today, will help us reach many more in need.
Please bring hope and relief to children living in dangerous places, like Syria.
