For the past seven years, the people of Syria have been suffering the devastating consequences of war with no end in sight.

A staggering 13.1 million people across Syria are in urgent need of humanitarian aid, including more than five million children.

Three million people are living in besieged areas without access to humanitarian aid and the total number of displaced Syrians has risen to 11.5 million.

Urgent need for humanitarian aid in southern Syria

Since 17th June, escalation in hostilities in southern Syria have resulted in the death of thousands of people, the destruction of infrastructure and the displacement of tens of thousands of individuals. The majority of Syrian families are now fleeing to eastern and western Dara’a near the border with Jordan in search of safety and security.

At this very moment, hundreds of thousands of people, including those displaced from their homes, are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, in particular food and shelter.

Access is a challenge for INGOs, and only UN agencies have been given permission to intervene directly. Islamic Relief is currently exploring all options of aid delivery in the region.

Despite the ongoing escalation in hostilities, our work in Syria continues, providing vital assistance to these vulnerable people.
