Thank you

Thank you for taking part in Barefoot and Coatless. You have given coats, shoes and blankets to children paying the cost of war.

And you've done even more... children in the refugee camps can go to after school classes and catch up with their education, can stay healthy through school feeding programmes and can finally have fun in spaces like new football pitches. As children reach the borders on their treacherous journey, they have friendly World Vision faces waiting for them and warm spaces to rest, play and maybe forget for a short time. But we can always do more.

As we look forward to the spring... – still. While Syria’s children are in fear and in need, we’ll continue to help them and you can too.

THE COST OF WAR

As the conflict enters its sixth year, we’re still standing with Syria’s children. On 23 March we’re hosting afternoon tea in Parliament to launch our new report on the Syrian crisis, The cost of conflict for children

The event brings supporters, MPs and staff from our Lebanon office together, as well as celebrity ambassador Natasha Little and bloggers Rosie and Tanya, to talk about what they’ve seen in Lebanon, Jordan and Serbia. And we’ll share new figures on the financial and human Cost of War, from our new report.

Supporters will have the chance to ask their own MPs what they're doing to help Syrian children. If you’d like to ask your MP what they’re doing, invite them to the event and claim your place
