Reaching children affected by the Syrian crisis
Children are disproportionately affected by conflict. Learn more about how the Syrian crisis is affecting children in Jordan and what we are doing to help.
Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, over five million people have sought refuge in neighbouring countries, including some 670,000 Syrians who are registered as refugees in Jordan. World Vision is committed to reaching children, especially the most vulnerable, and their families to ease suffering and keep our promise to rebuild futures.
Since May 2013, we have been responding to the needs of those affected by the crisis in Jordan with remedial and early childhood education classes, psychosocial support, healthy meals for Syrian school students, rice for vulnerable Jordanian families, environmentally friendly energy solutions and rehabilitation of water & sanitation services in both schools and communities.
