Over 4 years of civil unrest in Syria has created the worst humanitarian disaster since the end of the Second World War. Over 12 million Syrians inside the country are in urgent need of assistance, while millions have escaped, seeking safety in other countries.

Four million Syrian refugees in urgent need

There are over four million Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey, many of whom are in urgent need of assistance. Over 367,000 people have also dared to make the dangerous journey to Europe by sea this year, often putting their lives at stake. There are over 1,500 refugees arriving into Europe daily, many of whom are children and women.

Syrian refugees face an uncertain future. They need your help. Please donate now to Islamic Relief’s refugee appeal. The funds will allow us to respond quickly and support those who’ve left everything behind just to stay alive.

Alhamdulillah thanks to your generosity, we have been quick on the ground and been able to reach over 2 million refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, while supporting tens of thousands of refugees across Europe.
