The war in Syria is in its fifth year, and humanitarian needs in the region continue to grow, while global support for aid-which has never been enough-is waning. In 2014, the number of children needing help increased by 31 percent. According to the U.N., support to assist Syrian families in 2013 covered only 71 percent of the need. In 2014, it dropped to 57 percent. $1.6 million to fund the programs we've committed to providing.
World Vision's response began in Lebanon in 2011, and since then, has expanded to Jordan, Northern Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. In September 2015, we began assisting refugees transiting through Serbia. Programs in all countries have focused on critical support and services, reaching over 2 million people since the response began. World Vision's 560 staff in these countries provide displaced people with clean water, essential food and hygiene items, health services, and cash vouchers.
For the next 2 years, World Vision's One Syria Response aims to reach another 2 million people, in those countries affected by the Syrian refugee crisis. Interventions will provide informal education and child protection for children, and water, food, and cash assistance to families.
