Refugee Crisis Appeal

Thousands of refugees, many of them children, have taken the treacherous journey from their war torn countries, to Europe.

No child should have to endure the violence, hunger, cold and fear that these children have experienced in their lifetime.


Tens of thousands of refugees, the majority of them Syrian, are making the treacherous journey to Europe in the hope of finally finding safety – among them an estimated eight thousand unaccompanied children. And as we’ve seen recently, many do not make it.

World Vision continues responding in Syria and the wider region as the crisis reaches Europe. We are providing baby packages, support to lactating mothers and pregnant women as well as general hygiene items and clean water. And as the evenings are getting colder, we are distributing blankets and mats.

Yet millions of families seek safety in countries bordering Syria and others are homeless within the country. As always, the most vulnerable are the children, who suffer the most.

Families are still in urgent need of food, shelter and household essentials like blankets and hygiene items. Their children still desperately need your support as the humanitarian need continues to grow, becoming more desperate than ever.

How your money can help

  • £36 could provide an emergency baby kit for the youngest of refugees
  • £60 could give a family nutritious food for three weeks, including milk for their babies
  • £150 could provide mattresses, blankets, hygiene kits and a kitchen set for a family



World Vision's response to this crisis is continually expanding and we will use your donation to help children and families in the Syria region and refugees arriving in Europe.
