Now in its fifth year, the crisis in Syria has unleashed one of the worst humanitarian crises in modern history. Roughly 12 million people have been displaced by the fighting and are in desperate need of assistance. Children are the largest and most vulnerable group affected by the Syria crisis, yet their needs are often unmet. A generation of children is at risk of being lost — lost to displacement, lost to poverty, lost to the worst forms of child labor and other forms of exploitation. Without educated and safe children, it will take much longer and be much harder for Syria to recover.
Please pray for the children impacted by the crisis in Syria, and give a gift to help refugee children and their families today.
World Vision is the leading nongovernmental (NGO) provider of clean water. We reach one new person with clean water every 30 seconds. We work alongside communities so that they take ownership in maintenance and repair of water points. This results in water that continues to flow long after our work concludes.
World Vision seeks to create a protective environment around children, such that they not only survive but thrive in their communities. World Vision’s programs strive to ensure that physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of the most vulnerable children are met within caring and protective families and communities — focusing on activities that prevent them from falling into crisis or harmful situations; protect those who are in immediate danger through responsive care and improved capacity of service providers to respond; and restore child survivors of abuse, exploitation, or violence through appropriate community-based care.
More than 90% of natural disaster-related deaths occur in developing countries, where poverty and lack of resources exacerbate the suffering. We work in many of these countries, preparing for disasters before they happen, and responding quickly when they do.
One in five American children lives in poverty. We focus our work in some of our nation’s most distressed and under-served communities, where poverty is high and opportunities are limited. We also respond to disasters that occur right here in the United States.
