Help for children in refugee crisis

Join Our Team Donate

On Friday, Nov 6th, Running Walking Club and F.O.C.U.S. (Fellowship of Christian University Students) and whoever else chooses to participate, will be running, walking or crawling laps for every 10$ raised around Janse Hall at National University of Health Sciences (~1/4 mi per lap).   

Fast Facts:

  • Nearly 12 million Syrians have been forced from their homes by the fighting; half are children.
  • At least 7.6 million have been displaced within Syria, and more than 4 million have fled as refugees in neighboring countries.
  • Increasing numbers of refugees are making dangerous attempts to reach Europe. About 51 percent of them are from Syria, the UN Refugee Agency says.
  • Children affected by the Syrian conflict are at risk of becoming ill, malnourished, abused, or exploited. Millions have been forced to quit school.
  • Since the beginning of this crisis, World Vision has helped more than 2 million people in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq.
  • In response to the migration toward Europe, we are now also providing aid in Serbia.
