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.

South Sudan: 4.7 million people face severe food shortages.

Syria: Children who have fled violence need your help.

World Vision is working in Syria, and in neighbouring countries to help provide essentials to traumatized families. READ MORE...

Famine has officially been declared in parts of South Sudan – with 100,000 people facing starvation. A combination of conflict and drought has pushed hundreds of thousands to the brink of survival with 270,000 children suffering the most critical form of malnutrition.

World Vision is working right now in South Sudan to provide urgent relief to children and families impacted by severe food shortages. Thanks to World Vision supporters, families are receiving things like:

  • Monthly food rations of staple foods - sorghum, corn, oil, beans, sugar and salt.
  • Targeted support to pregnant women and children who have medical complications from acute malnutrition.
  • Seeds, tools and training to farmers to build self-reliance and stave off the horrible effects of famine.

In partnership with the World Food Programme, World Vision is helping over half a million people with food assistance in South Sudan. But 4.7 million face severe food shortages – and need your support.

WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

Help relief efforts in South Sudan and other countries at risk of famine.

Syria: Children who have fled violence need your help.

Six years ago, Syrian people worked, played and raised families – much like we do. Theirs was a vibrant, modern, culture with a rich history. Then the conflict began. People, leading ordinary lives, have been forced to flee for their safety. More than half of these people are children.

Bombs have destroyed their homes, businesses, schools and hospitals. 30,000 people suffer violence related trauma injuries every month!

There are an estimated 13.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance because of this conflict*.

World Vision is working in Syria, and in neighbouring countries to help provide essentials to traumatized families. In northern Syria, where the government is not able to provide aid, World Vision and a few other partners are providing 90% of the aid. But, the need is still immense.

Currently World Vision is working to meet the needs of people who have fled recent violence – in and around Aleppo alone by:

  • Providing relief items including blankets, mattresses, hygiene kits and heaters to more than 4,600 people
  • Providing clean water and sanitation services to 7,000 people
  • Supporting primary and mobile health clinics for 3,100 internally displaced people living in camps as well as 12,000 of the host communities and surrounding villages

With the help of donors like you, in 2016 World Vision has reached almost 2.3 million people**. Your donation today, will help us reach many more in need.

Please bring hope and relief to children living in dangerous places, like Syria.

Iraq: Children escaping the fighting in Mosul 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.
