Fighting in northern Iraq has forced thousands of families to flee. Christians and other minorities targeted for persecution have chosen to abandon their homes rather than their faith. Many have endured long journeys in searing 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
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.
