Situation Update – Syria is seeing it’s darkest days
Conflict in Syria is escalating. The situation is getting worse by the day.
11.7 million people across Syria are in need of humanitarian aid, with 6.5 million people facing food insecurity.
Since December, over 1 million civilians have been forced to flee their homes in search for shelter, safety, and security in nortwest Idlib and Aleppo.
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 teams have been distributing mattresses, blankets, tents, food and clothes for children as well as heating equipment, but so much more still needs to be done.
We desperately need your support to provide:
- Emergency shelter: There are simply not enough tents for everyone in sub-zero temperatures
- Food: We’re the World Food Programme’s main partner distributing fresh bread and ready-made meals
- Medical care: Our mobile emergency unit is providing daily critical care where many hospitals have been suspended following attacks
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.
We urgently need your support to help save lives. Please donate now.
