The Syria Crisis has now been raging for six long years. More than six million people have been forced from their homes within Syria, fleeing Aleppo and other centres of conflict and pouring into new areas which are already troubled and insecure.
Nearly five million have managed to escape Syria – but are now facing challenges no child should ever endure, missing school, working as child labourers and girls vulnerable to early marriage.
A generation of children is at risk of being lost to the impact of this conflict.
World Vision’s staff and partners are on the front lines of this crisis working in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq to bring aid and hope to children, families and communities.
Last year, our Syria Response supported almost 2.3 million people – half of them children – through education, child protection including Child Friendly Spaces, food and cash assistance, water, sanitation, health and winter supplies.
