Hundreds of thousands of children and their families are homeless in the wake of the earthquake. These children are now even more vulnerable to family separation, exploitation, and abuse. With buildings unsafe, they also are unable to return to school. In northern Syria, the threats to children from abuse were already extreme. The soaring poverty, within a warzone, now devastated by earthquakes, has created an unimaginable number of challenges, and suffering for children. They need your help !
The earthquakes that have devastated Southern Turkiye and Northern Syria killed over 50,000 people in Turkiye and Syria. Over 87,000 injuries have been reported and at least 13,900 buildings are partially or completely destroyed. World Vision Syria Response aims to implement USD$25 million in emergency response to support 520,000 people. World Vision's current advocacy is focused on scaling up the humanitarian response to meet the enormous needs, prioritizing child protection in the response.
7 -90 days :North-West Syria is a complicated and dangerous operating environment. The plan is to respond in priority sectors that build on our in-country track record of years of implementation in Water, hygiene, sanitation, protection, Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVP), education, & health and nutrition. Activities : shelter and survival Items (short term), establishment of temporary clinics in the affected areas, physical, psychosocial and protection needs for children (Child friendly space).
Rehabilitation phase (90days onwards) - WV Syria will investigate longer-term rehabilitation and livelihoods regeneration needs based on the situation that emerges from assessments, the clusters etc. Include activities such as support to schools and clinics, repair or reestablishment of services (provision of supplies, equipment etc), livelihoods support for families (through cash [CVP]) or longer-term rehab and rehabilitation of water systems or other critical community infrastructure.
