Islamic Relief is distributing food and medicines deep inside Syria, and helping hundreds of thousands of refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.
The Syrian crisis has become so overwhelming, and funds so overstretched, that aid agencies are having to choose which people get help and which are left to fend for themselves. It’s a problem no refugee should have to face, and a choice no aid worker should have to make. We need your support more than ever before to keep hunger and disease at bay and keep hope alive.
Islamic Relief’s Syria appeal response
Islamic Relief provided assistance to 1.1 million Syrians in 2012 and over a million people in 2013. Our £25 million Syria appeal aid programme so far in 2013 includes:
- Medical aid for 30 field hospitals and 60 other medical points throughout Syria, including a fleet of 30 ambulances
- Hospital treatment for 18,000 people
- Food parcels and food support for almost 400,000 people
- 76,000 portions of baby milk, 450 tonnes of wheat flour and 200 tonnes of dates
- 27,000 hygiene kits plus toilet and shower units for displaced people’s camp
- 76,000 blankets and 30,000 mattresses.

As the crisis in Syria deepens, more and more families are fleeing their homes and seeking sanctity in neighbouring countries. Approximately 36% of Syrian refugees are under the age of 12, growing up in makeshift accommodation. Islamic Relief is continuing the emergency relief response amid the insecurity, with support for Syrians inside Syria as well as for those that have fled to neighbouring countries.
