Syria Crisis Appeal
It has been ten years, but the world's largest humanitarian crisis in Syria shows no signs of ending. More than six million Syrians have been internally displaced and over 5.6 million people have sought refuge in neighbouring countries.
Since the conflict escalated in April 2019, more than 400,000 people in North-western Syria, including 150,000 children have fled their homes, many deeply distressed by what they have seen. Health centres and hospitals, schools and other basic infrastructure have been damaged and destroyed
With the spread of COVID19 worldwide, the children face even more suffering and upheaval. A pandemic of this scale would be catastrophic to settlement communities with no access to essential life-saving health services and where distancing from others is practically impossible. Children will be amongst the hardest hit, especially those with underlying health conditions. They will also face greater risk of malnutrition. For these children, the impact will be devastating.
World Vision is helping children and families in Syria by improving their access to essential healthcare services. Your donation will help us to:
- support crippled healthcare systems: hospitals, maternal and child health services, primary health clinics and mobile clinics
- providing safe and inclusive community spaces for children to learn, play and receive other forms of support
- provide case management and psychosocial support services for gender-based violence and child protection cases
- provide individual protection services to vulnerable children and adults
