Syria Urgent Appeal
Syria has suffered for the better part of a decade, in light of the developing crisis and the increased number of families who have been forced to leave their homes, the need for relief inside Syria has become more pressing over the past few months.
For the last seven years, our staff have been on the ground in Syria and its neighbouring countries, supporting children and families. With over a thousand full time staff members working in the heart of Syria we are able to adapt our response depending on the varied need.
What we are doing in Syria?
In northwest Syria, we are managing five primary healthcare facilities and one maternity hospital. Our medical staff are working tirelessly each day seeing to an average of 20,000 patients at the facilities each month.
Our nutritional centers offer vaccinations and health support to families, and our staff make frequent visits to camps, referring any children who are suffering from malnutrition.
The well-being of children who have been caught up in the conflict remains an important part of our work. Our Child Friendly Spaces welcome thousands of children like Malik each day, where they can learn, play and receive psychosocial support.
Where violence has forced families from their homes, we’re distributing essential relief items such as blankets, sleeping materials, cooking utensils, and toiletries.
Inadequate food production, along with a severe currency depreciation means that food is now scarce in many parts of Syria. Our team are reaching the most deprived areas of Syria distributing emergency food rations and fresh food vouchers.
Wherever we are in Syria, and whatever service we are providing, we know that the need is urgent.
Please help us do our part in relieving the suffering and supporting the future of Syria.
