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.
These people managed to find refuge in countries like Jordan and have been able to start a new life. For some, the process of moving to another country on a permanent basis is long, and some may not even make it past the application process. Countries like the United States of America ask potential new citizens to fill out something similar to form n-400 to mark the first step of naturalization in their journey to becoming an American citizen. Whether you manage to find refuge in communities like Jordan or in one of the most popular countries in the world, being able to find refuge in a safe place is the most important thing.
A donation today will help us empower Syrian children and their families to build a brighter future.
