How your donations are helping in Syria
COVID-19 is having a devastating effect in a region where many hospitals and clinics have already been destroyed or damaged.
There is now a race against time to save lives by stopping the spread of the virus and help save the lives of people who are desperate.
There aren’t enough hospital beds or supplies to treat those seriously ill. But, as we have seen in the UK, simple measures can make a huge difference.
Many lives can be saved if we act now to protect millions of displaced people.
We need your help to:
- Provide frontline medical and aid workers with equipment and supplies to care for sick people
- Ensure families get enough food to prevent malnutrition, particularly amongst children
- Provide families with clean water and soap to prevent the spread of disease
- Educate people on keeping themselves safe
People who have suffered so much need your help now more than ever to fight this virus.
Please donate now
As the crisis enters its tenth year, the people of Syria have been suffering the devastating consequences of war with seemingly no end in sight. A generation of children are growing up knowing nothing but war.
Right now, a staggering 11.7 million people across Syria are in need of humanitarian aid, with 6.5 million people also facing food insecurity.
Over six million people are currently displaced inside Syria, and almost six million more have been registered as refugees in various countries across the globe.
What Islamic Relief is already doing to help in Syria
Alhamdulillah, since the devastating conflict began, Islamic Relief has delivered more than £320 million worth of aid inside Syria. Aid has also reached neighbouring countries (Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey for Syrian refugees) assisting millions of vulnerable Syrians forced to flee their homes.
In 2019 alone, because of your donations, we helped over 2.3 million people affected by the Syrian conflict. Our teams on the ground have been able to provide life-saving assistance through:
- Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
- Orphan sponsorship
- Ramadan & Qurbani programmes
Over the years we have been able to save millions of lives, but as the conflict rages on, we still urgently need your support – Please donate to our Syria Appeal and help save lives.
