Fighting in northern Iraq has forced thousands of families to flee. Christians and other minorities targeted for persecution chose to abandon their homes rather than their faith. Many endured long journey in searing summer heat to seek safety.
Almost 2 million people have been displaced from their homes, according to U.N. estimates.
Families and children seeking refuge are suffering and need immediate assistance, including food, water, shelter, and medicine.
Recognizing that children are always disproportionately affected by conflict and displacement, World Vision’s rapid response team is on the ground in Iraq, setting up operations to help them. We are working with local partners to help provide vulnerable children and families with food assistance, water supply and sanitation, hygiene kits, and more.
We need your support. Your gift will help rush emergency supplies and let children affected by this crisis know they’re not alone.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
