Situation Update – Syria is seeing it’s darkest days
Conflict in Syria is escalating. The situation is getting worse by the day.
4 million peoples lives have been devastated in north-west Syria alone.
Since December, over 832, 000 civilians have been forced to flee their homes in search for shelter, safety, and security in nortwest Idlib and Aleppo. Women and children are the worst affected, making up an estimate of 80% of those recently displaced.
180 people have been reported dead in Idlib since January, including 60 children and 27 women. More than 50 health facilities have suspended their services and with the harsh winter temperatures below zero degrees, people are increasingly vulnerable.
As the needs on the ground escalate, we urgently need to step up our support
Islamic Relief Syria is one of the last NGO’s left operating in Idlib. 90% of our staff are amongst those displaced, many of whom have been forced to flee their homes several times.
Our staff and the people we work with have chosen to stay inside the country rather than become refugees, so that they can help the people of Syria and make a difference.
Let us come together to ease the burden of the people of Syria, and save lives.
Urgent Humanitarian needs include, ready-to-eat and cooked meals, shelter, emergency health services (medicines, disposables) both for trauma and non-trauma patients, winter kits for heating/insulation, Water (for drinking and personal use), sanitation facilities and hygiene packs.
We urgently need your support to help save lives. Please donate now.
