Raw Hope helps children living in some of the world’s most dangerous places. Two of these places are Mosul, Iraq and Aleppo, Syria.

World Vision Canada anticipates raising $383 million in total revenue for its community development, emergency relief and advocacy work, of which less than 16.3% will be used for necessary fundraising. In cases where donations exceed what is needed or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision Canada will redirect funds to similar activities to help needy people.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

SPREAD THE WORD

Where is my money going?

Raw Hope works only in the most fragile areas in the world to provide protection and a chance of survival for the children who live there. Raw Hope responds to urgent need, providing aid and security for children in volatile areas.


This includes everything from minimizing the risk of rape and murder of children travelling to water supplies, to helping to give children a voice through Child Parliaments.


Raw Hope currently has projects in Iraq, Afghanistan, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Syria.

Why can't I sponsor a child in these areas?

Raw Hope works in the most dangerous places where it is extremely difficult and inefficient to establish child sponsorship programs. Before Raw Hope, World Vision had to rely on unreliable sources of funding which prevented the provision of substantial support to those areas most in need.

Am I able to select which fragile state my donations will go to?

In order to be flexible with how Raw Hope helps children and families, our program experts use your monthly donations in any of the countries Raw Hope works in as needed.

What will I receive as a donor?

Every Raw Hope donor receives a quarterly email update, which provides project updates and shows the impact being made in the lives of vulnerable children and families.

Mosul: Children escaping the fighting urgently need support.

More than 70,000 people have fled Mosul since October 17, 2016 when Iraq’s military offensive set out to re-take the city. Children have arrived in refugee camps and now need support to rebuild their lives. The horrific experience of fleeing the fighting in Mosul, and the past two years of ISIL control, has taken a severe toll on children’s physical and mental health.

Urgent: Children need help as families evacuate Aleppo.

The evacuation of eastern Aleppo continues and conditions remain immensely tough for evacuees. Children are cold, hungry, in increasingly crowded conditions and continue to face danger from attacks. People are being evacuated to camps and villages in the Western Aleppo countryside.

The need is urgent.
