This World Humanitarian Day, we honour the women who work on the front line of their own communities in some of the most difficult places. This is Qamar Al-Kurdi's story.
Statement by World Vision and other NGOs following the demolition of refugees' homes in Arsal.
At least 15,000 Syrian children face homelessness as their homes in Arsal, Lebanon, are scheduled for demolition.
As the international community came together for the 7th consecutive year to commit to helping Syrians inside their country, as well as refugees and their hosts, 15 aid agencies called today for a sustained follow-up to ensure political and funding support translates into meaningful improvements for all Syrians.
Freezing temperatures, rain and snow have exacerbated already dire conditions in Lebanon’s refugee camps, leaving an estimated 70,000 Syrians at risk.
International children’s charity, World Vision, has scaled up efforts to support Syrian families camped out in Lebanon as winter takes hold in the refugee settlements.
World Vision ambassador, Graham Grout, has finished his super-human challenge of 200 half marathons in just over 200 days.
Fatal fires in refugee settlements in Lebanon are commonplace. Refugees need peace in Syria, not tented settlements
International children’s charity World Vision has today urged for concrete action to protect Syria’s children following a major international conference with world leaders in Brussels.
For Mayssa, a Syrian mother displaced by conflict, the $4 dollars she rations for each meal is enough to give her three children a little taste of home. What would you be able to make with $4?
World Vision’s campaign ‘It takes a world to end violence against children’ was named because no one individual, group or organisation can solve this problem alone.
Partnering with Microsoft & Facebook to bridge education gap and teach Syrian child refugees using digital technology
International children’s charity World Vision is partnering with Microsoft, Google, Cisco Facebook; and other tech companies to host the #EdTech summit (01-02 March) which aims to inspire Syrian refugee children to harness the power of technology.
World Vision is poised to support children and their families expected to flee western Mosul, as a military offensive to re-take the second half of the city gains pace.
As the Pope dedicates today to remembering the many children and families fleeing conflict and seeking safety around the world, our Senior Child Rights Policy Advisor Erica Hall writes about her own experiences opening her home and her heart to refugees, and why there is always room for one more.
A ‘crisis within a crisis’ is unfolding in the countryside outside Aleppo as thousands who fled the city now face increasingly dire conditions.
Aleppo’s destruction has left Syrian children facing some of their darkest days yet. We also know that Aleppo is only one of many besieged cities in Syria and another 400,000 people may be living in similar, if not worse situations.
The fighting in Aleppo has intensified, but the evacuations of families from Eastern Aleppo has been suspended. Before the suspension, 8,000 families escaped on buses. Many left without any belongings or food. The UN believes at least 2,700 children were among the evacuees. Some left without their parents.
No child should be without a home – especially at Christmas. Just £24 could fund four stays in a World Vision temporary shelter, where children can feel safe and cared for.
Please help prevent malnutrition in vulnerable children. Just £20 could feed a child for two months. A steady supply of emergency food could save their life.
World Vision staff say that children are arriving at camps too petrified to speak after fleeing the conflict in the Iraqi city of Mosul. Find out more here.
