The Syria Crisis has now been raging for seven 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.
Approximately 5.6 million people have managed to escape Syria, of these UNICEF estimates 2.6 million are children. They 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 – 1.3 million children – through education, child protection including Child Friendly Spaces, food and cash assistance, water, sanitation, health and winter supplies.
