Refugee Crisis Appeal

Over two million people have fled Syria, in fear of their lives. More than half of them are children. Many families fled with simply the clothes on their back.

Please donate now to save lives and protect Syrian children this winter.


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 8,000 unaccompanied children. And as we’ve seen recently, many do not make it.

We're helping in Syria, the surrounding region and in Europe, providing baby and hygiene items, help for new mums and pregnant women and clean water. Throughout the winter we're also giving out blankets and warm coats.

But as the crisis deepens, 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.
