(World Vision International) – $275 billion (USD), $689 billion (USD), $1.3 trillion (USD). These mind-boggling figures revealed in a new report released today by aid agency World Vision, highlight how far the persistent and horrifying costs for Syria, its neighbours and its children have risen and will likely rise in the future. “The $275 billion (USD) this war has already cost the Syrian economy is lost money. It will never be recovered, never be spent to provide education, health care, safe environments, livelihoods or a future for children,” said Conny Lenneberg, Regional Leader for World Vision’s Middle East programmes.
