For the past eight years, the people of Syria have been suffering the devastating consequences of war with seemingly no end in sight.
Right now, a staggering 11.7 million people across Syria are in need of humanitarian aid, with 6.5 million people food insecure.
Over six million people are currently displaced inside Syria, whilst almost six million more have since been registered as refugees in various countries across the globe.
The collapse of a conditional ceasefire has seen an escalation in conflict, particularly in north-western Syria. Several health facilities have been attacked, four of which have been critically damaged and two completely destroyed. Islamic Relief teams on the ground in Idleb and Aleppo have identified a critical need for food, shelter, trauma medical supplies and sanitation. The people of Syria need you now more than ever! Donate today and help Islamic Relief save lives.
Since the 5th August 2019
- 6 health facilities partially or completely destroyed
- 58 schools targeted
- More than 130,000 civilians displaced
- 450 women and children confirmed dead
Islamic Relief’s R5.2 billion Syria programme
Alhamdulillah, since the devastating conflict began, Islamic Relief has delivered more than R5.2 billion worth of aid inside Syria and in neighbouring countries, assisting millions of vulnerable people.
In 2018 alone, we helped around three million people in need across Syria and in neighbouring Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq. Inside Syria, we’ve been working in areas such as Aleppo, Idlib and Homs, amongst others to provide life-saving assistance.
We urgently need your support to help save lives. Please donate now.
