Nearly 12 million Syrians have been affected by the war and more than half are children. Millions are escaping the violence to seek refuge in neighboring countries, yet lack access to basic necessities.

For a child who has lost everything, a Promise Pack provides a sense of normalcy and it’s something they can call their own. — Dana, World Vision

Around the world, millions of children are unable to attend school simply because their families are unable to obtain or afford basic school supplies. These children, particularly girls, are at greater risk for exploitation and a life defined by crushing poverty. In the same way, the lack of access to the most basic hygiene supplies, and the risk of insect-borne illnesses like malaria can rob children of their health, happiness, and hope.

We will provide tangible help and a clear message that someone cares.
