Syria Crisis Appeal

The conflict in Syria is entering its eighth year. We urgently need your help to support deeply traumatised children who've made their escape.

Young children and babies are the most vulnerable. We need your help.

Please donate now.


Children like Ali, a 13 year old boy who fled Syria with his family. Ali told us what he saw.

“They were slaughtering people with knives. They had slaughtered them and threw them under the car.  I saw buildings falling down, I saw houses on fire. It’s hard I can’t forget what I saw. I saw it with my own eyes, my mother took us and we fled. I have never been so scared.”

How your money can help

  • £52 could provide school supplies, hygiene kits, blankets and notes of encouragement to 3 children so they know they are not forgotten.
  • £78 could provide life-saving food to a refugee family for a month.
  • £175 could provide a child with nutritious food, clean water, medical care, education and a safe place to stay for a month.



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.
