Syrian children's lives at risk. Here's how you can help.

Discussion in 'News Stand' started by Chad, Sep 4, 2015.


    The four-year conflict in Syria has always devastated children's lives the most. This week, that tragic reality was shown to the world through a shocking photo of one small victim. Our hearts are broken. We must do more for the children of Syria.




    Brutal attacks have displaced more than half of Syria's population. More than half. That means more Syrians have fled their homes than those who have stayed. More than 4 million people have escaped as refugees to neighboring countries, and that number is increasing every day. We can provide refuge to these displaced families.

    God is calling us to go farther and deeper into the hot spots of today's troubled world. Since the beginning of this crisis, World Vision has helped more than 1.7 million people in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. We've provided monthly food vouchers, distributed personal and household supplies, facilitated access to clean water and sanitation facilities, and established Child-Friendly Spaces and education programs for children.

    But we need your help to continue this vital work.

    Far too many Syrian mothers and fathers are faced with impossible choices as they flee the devastation in their homeland. Without further humanitarian aid to Syria and border countries, more refugees will continue to flow into Europe. We must fully support refugees and internally displaced people, half of whom are children. With your help, World Vision can give them the vital resources they need to keep their children safe, healthy, and secure.

    Please join us in lifting up prayers for Syrian children and their families. And please consider donating to our Syrian Refugee Crisis Fund today.


    God bless you,


    Rich Stearns
    President, World Vision U.S.

    P.S. To help us have the greatest impact in Syria, please consider becoming a Disaster Relief Partner with a monthly pledge of any amount to provide vital care to displaced Syrian families.
