ATLANTA (AP) — CARE President and CEO Michelle Nunn says more help is needed for Syrian refugees caught in what she called the world's largest humanitarian crisis since World War II.

Nunn unveiled plans Thursday in Atlanta for a new social media campaign her organization will soon launch.

She said the refugees need jobs, basic resources and hope for their children.

Secretary of State John Kerry has said the U.S. would increase the number of migrants it takes in over the next two years, with 85,000 refugees from around the world allowed in next year.

CARE, one of the world's largest non-governmental aid organizations, is an acronym for Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere. Nunn became its president and CEO in July, after an unsuccessful U.S. Senate bid in 2014.
