Syria Emergency Appeal: We need your help!

Latest News

Published on:
In light of the new military operations within North East Syria, we are already seeing a further increase in displacement and interruption to vital services. This development, combined with the continuing situation in Idlib means that the international aid response needs urgent support. There are currently not enough resources to fully respond to the humanitarian needs on both fronts. We are making an urgent appeal for donations, in order for Syria Relief to be able to begin to meet the needs.

Quite frankly, we need help. UNOCHA reports that there are over 1.6 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in North East Syria, on top of the 2.7 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in North West Syria. There are 450,000 more people at risk of displacement, since the events of the last 48 hours. 90,000 of those are believed to have already been displaced at least once before during this conflict. The needs of these people are complex and urgent. Additionally, there are 400,000 more people displaced since May 2019 from Idlib and Hama.

Finally, we are urging all parties to the conflict to seek that full measures are taking to protect civilians, to allow aid to reach those who need it and allow those who need to flee conflict areas safe passage.
