Daily violence is a reality for children in Jerusalem/West Bank/Gaza communities. Amidst the conflicts, families struggle to make a living and children do their best to continue their education.
 

World Vision helps communities through projects that generate food and income, such as agricultural cooperatives, savings groups and small business support. Schools are equipped with new resources, such as science labs, computer resource centres, libraries and sports facilities. To address mental health concerns for orphaned and distressed children, safe spaces and summer camps are supported. By empowering children to overcome trauma, we encourage their hope and vision for the future.
