Heartbreaking destruction in Aleppo, Syria

The ceasefire in eastern Aleppo has shattered, stalling the evacuation plan to get people out of the city on buses. As eastern Aleppo lies in ruins, the reports of violence against the children of Aleppo signal a terrifying new chapter in the Syrian Crisis. 

World Vision is gathering thousands of blankets, mattresses and other necessities to prepare for new arrivals from Aleppo. Currently, World Vision supports more than one million displaced people from northern Syrian with clean water, sanitation, and support to health services with equipment and supplies. 

World Vision calls for lasting peace for the people of Syria, and safe passage for residents to leave Aleppo to safe ground, where World Vision and other organizations can provide support.

To help children and families in dangerous places, donate to Raw Hope. Your gift will provide things like clean water, education, nutritious food, healthcare and shelter.
