Syria Relief is a UK based charity which was established in Manchester, the UK, at the start of the Syrian crisis in 2011.
Dismayed at the rapidly unfolding crisis in Syria, a group of friends of Syrian heritage came together to make a concerted effort to provide emergency humanitarian aid in the region, for what was initially assumed a short-term project. Since then we have grown to become the largest Syria-focused, UK-based Charity, having touched the lives of 1.8 million Syrians in need.
We provide medical care, food aid, education, and training. Our aim is to support millions of Syrians who have been affected by the on-going crisis, and in the process, help reduce the mass migration from Syria. Donate to Syria Relief today and help us achieve this.

Almost 3 million homes have been made derelict or destroyed in the ongoing 8-year conflict, causing mass movement of displaced Syrians. There is a colossus shortage of basic housing, with many families resorting to inadequate, makeshift and unsecure shelters.
