The brutal civil war in Syria has forced nearly 700,000 refugees to flee to Jordan. War Child’s local team has helped tens of thousands of vulnerable children by providing them with safe spaces to play, to heal, and to further their education. War Child has also provided support to the families of those children, by ensuring that their mothers know their rights, have access to counselling, and receive the support they need to thrive in their new communities.
A donation today will help us empower Syrian children and their families to build a brighter future.
We are grateful to be able to provide critical services to Syrian refugees in Jordan. War Child would like to thank our generous supporters who have brought us this far. This work was made possible with the generous support of the IKEA Foundation and IKEA Canada, RBC Foundation, UN Women Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, The United States Institute of Peace, the Newlands Family Foundation, Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation, Alicia Keys’ We Are Here Inc, Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP, Catbird, and PLUS1.
