Right now, a staggering 11.1 million people across Syria are in need of humanitarian aid, with 9.8 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 £350 million worth of aid inside Syria and across the region. Aid has also reached neighbouring countries (Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey) assisting millions of vulnerable Syrians forced to flee their homes.

In 2020 alone, because of your donations towards the Syria Appeal, we helped over 2.5 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
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Food
  • Orphan sponsorship

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.
