Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, over five million people have sought refuge in neighbouring countries, and more than six million people have become internally displaced inside Syria. World Vision is committed to reaching children, especially the most vulnerable, and their families to ease suffering and keep our promise to rebuild futures. We began responding to the needs of displaced children and families in Lebanon in 2011 and since then have expanded to Jordan, Turkey and Syria. World Vision is supporting those affected by the crisis, including vulnerable host community members, with remedial and early childhood education classes, essential household items, psychosocial support, food, livelihoods and water, sanitation & hygiene assistance.
World Vision is working across Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan to support refugees, those who are internally displaced inside Syria and vulnerable host community members.
