Where we work

Support children in the Middle East

We support people in emergencies

We're committed to helping children who live in the world's hardest places. Some countries in the Middle East have experienced decades of conflicts and disasters that have disrupted children’s education, made them fear for their lives and in some cases have to flee their homes.

Thanks to your support, we can respond to emergencies quickly by delivering emergency food and hygiene packages to families affected, as well as provide long term development and support to vulnerable families.

Where World Vision works in the Middle East

We provide long term support to communities in Jerusalem-West Bank-Gaza and Lebanon, and have worked for two decades in Afghanistan. We are also working with partner organisations to support the needs of those affected by increased violence in Syria, Jordan, Türkiye (formerly Turkey) and Iraq.

Support our work in the Middle East

You can help transform the lives of the most vulnerable children

We all have a responsibility to the children of Syria: to help rebuild their country... and to protect their rights – to an education, to a childhood.

Justin Byworth

Global Humanitarian Director, WVI

Protect children caught in emergencies

World Vision has a presence in almost 100 countries which means we can act quickly to help children in the world’s most dangerous places. We help people to survive - through providing life’s essentials like food, water and shelter; to recover from trauma they experienced, and to equip them to rebuild their future.

Because of World Vision supporters funding projects like our Emergency Response, when disasters strike, we can spring into action in less than 72 hours and provide life-saving support to children and their families.

More about our work

From decades of conflict to the biggest refugee crisis since World War II, the communities we support in the Middle East need the world’s support urgently.

Thanks to the faithful support of people like you, our unique community-based model, refined and expanded over our more than 70-year history, can focus on key areas to ensure that all children, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender experience the fullness of life.

Our work is driven by a relentless desire to transform the lives of children so we partner with governments, peer organisations, institutional donors and businesses so together, we can have a greater impact in the lives of the families we serve. You can learn more about them and our work below.
