The conflict in Syria is about to enter its fourth year. It has already claimed more than 100,000 lives—at least 10,000 of whom are confirmed to be children—forced approximately 9 million people to flee their homes and 2.5 million people to take refuge in neighbouring countries. Valerie Amos, UN-Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency relief and others have called it, “the biggest humanitarian crisis we face today.” And, it shows no signs of stopping.

Experts warn that if the immediate needs for education, psycho-social support and protection are not met for the 5.5 million children currently living in desperate conditions in Syria and neighbouring countries, a whole generation could be lost and the effects of this conflict will continue to ripple within Syria and the region for decades to come.

World Vision has been responding to the needs of children affected by this crisis since 2011. We are currently working to serve those displaced internally as well as those who have sought refuge in neighbouring Lebanon and Jordan.  But, there are so many children… so many needs.

We desperately want to do more and together we can. World Vision is partnering with the UN and other agencies to champion the children of Syria who are asking the international community to Stand With Me.
