We’ve reached children and families with food, blankets, tents, clothes, and other services like case management, non-formal education and Child-Friendly Spaces.

    11-year-old Riwa* from Aleppo, Syria, went to school until the fourth grade. She currently lives in a tent with her family at a refugee camp in Greece where she attends our Child-Friendly Space. Child refugees stranded in Greece have been out of school for an average of one and a half years, risking a generation which has been denied the right to an education. We provide access to education for children caught in the midst of long-term conflict so kids like Riwa* can continue learning. *Name changed for protection

    Midwife Sadya holds a newborn baby at a public health clinic in Afghanistan. “I wanted to serve my villagers,” Sadya told us of starting her job. She was motivated to become a midwife when she noticed a high mortality rate among mothers and newborns in her village. “My work is important for me,” she said. “Because women form an important part of society.”

    A young Syrian girl sits outside her tent in Za'atari Refugee Camp, Jordan. Syrian refugees continue to pour into Jordan in their thousands to escape the violence in Syria. They now live in tents in the desert of northern Jordan where conditions are harsh and the camp authorities struggle to meet the basic needs of the overwhelming numbers of refugees arriving each day. We’re reaching children with critical protection, education, food and shelter assistance. Learn more at the link in bio.
