Increasing conflict in Idlib, Syria: 1 million people displaced in the bitter cold

Displaced, cold, hungry, and with no shelter – families are at breaking point.

Since December 2019, conflict has escalated in North-West Syria. Hospitals, health facilities and camps have all been attacked – leaving an estimated 1 million people to flee to northwest Idlib and western Aleppo.

Yet this isn’t the first time…

Of the 3 million people already in Idlib, at least half were already displaced from other areas of Syria. Now with more people arriving, resources are stretched and there’s simply not enough resources to help everyone.

Camps are full and children are freezing to death as 200,000+ people have been left sleeping in open fields in temperatures of -7◦C.

We’ve never seen such high levels of displacement.

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

Millions of people in Idlib urgently need your help – Donate Now and help save lives.

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.

Syria Appeal: Islamic Relief’s £320+ million Syria programme

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)
  • Shelter
  • Health
  • Education
  • Food
  • 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.
