War in Syria has triggered the worst refugee crisis in our world today. Over half the Syrian population has been forced from their homes by violence, many of them fleeing to neighboring countries.
Of the 12 million Syrians affected, half are children. HALF. Many are now facing an uncertain future in crowded refugee camps where hope is hard to come by. Outside of Syria, fighting in Iraq, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic created new refugee communities in those countries. Worldwide, 60 million1 people have been forcibly displaced from their homes.
You'll help refugees and internally displaced people with life-saving essentials like:
Since the beginning of the Syria refugee crisis, World Vision has helped nearly 2 million2 children and adults in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. In Europe, we are now providing aid to refugees in Serbia. We are at work in the most broken places across the world. In South Sudan. In the Central African Republic. And together, we can help even more.
