The situation in Syria and neighbouring countries is the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time. More than half of those affected are children - that's more than the entire population of NZ. More than 5 million young lives are at risk of becoming a "lost generation".
The funds raised this year will support child-friendly spaces; safe, supportive learning environments where children can play again with other children, participate in art and sport, receive counselling to help them recover from the trauma of war and continue their education.
40 Hour Famine Packs are available from the office with a signed permission slip.
