The war in Syria has now entered into its seventh year. For seven years the Syrian people have been bombed, besieged and forced to endure one of the worst humanitarian crises in living memory. The recent intensification of violence and increase in military offensives has made the situation even more dangerous for ordinary civilians. Ordinary men, women, and children have borne the brunt of this conflict, they continue to suffer a war that does not seem to have an end in sight. The war continues to impact every aspect of life.
Islamic Relief (IR) continues to do all it can to help alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people. Despite the situation in Syria has become increasingly dangerous we continue to operate on the ground. Our humanitarian work in and around the country has been a multi-faceted effort, we have spent £239 million on projects inside Syria and neighbouring countries which are hosting large refugee populations.
We’ve helped over four million people
inside Syria. We have provided over half a million winter kits
to displaced people and given out 2.3 million food parcels
