The situation for Syrian children is critical and ongoing

The children of Syria certainly didn’t start the war, but arguably they’re the generation that has suffered the most. Right now there are hundreds of thousands of children, just like us, with no homes, no schools, an uncertain future and shattered dreams.

​What is the 40 Hour Famine?

The World Vision 40 Hour Famine is New Zealand’s largest youth fundraising event. Since it started in 1975 more than 2.7 million young Kiwis have signed up to take part. Over $77 million has been raised for thousands of children living in poverty in over 40 countries. 

This year is about a generation of young New Zealanders standing side by side with their brothers and sisters in Syria. Funds raised will support our Child Friendly Spaces in Jordan refugee camps and informal settlements that hundreds of thousands of refugees now call home.
