Save the Children

The MSFF has been a steadfast supporter of Save the Children’s work with children affected by the Syrian conflict, which is now entering its eighth year.

The MSFF has directly supported more than 7,600 refugee children at the Za’atari and Azraq refugee camps in Jordan, and leveraged funding through matched appeals to reach more than 4.5 million of the most vulnerable people across the Syrian region, including 2.9 million children.

Hani Farsi visited the Za’atari and Azraq refugee camps in person, and was profoundly moved by the extraordinary spirit of the people who lived there, as well as the Save the Children team. Since then, the MSFF has been committed to supporting the camp: and has given 902 children access to quality early childhood care in kindergarten; 175 vulnerable households unconditional cash assistance to meet their basic needs; and 765 children support through the camps’ Multi Activity Centres.

“Throughout seven years of the crisis in Syria, I’ve met with countless families who’ve lost everything, whose only possessions are the clothes they are wearing. Without the solidarity and support of foundations like the MSFF, they would not have been able to put bread on their tables ... the MSFF donation to Save the Children has already helped thousands of children across Syria to get on their feet, give them hope and allow them to dream about a better tomorrow.”
Ahmad from Save the Children, who has been working on the ground in Syria and Jordan.
