10 Years of conflict in Syria

10 Years of conflict

After more than ten years of war, there is hardly any media coverage of the living situation of the people in Syria. The Syrian conflict has become a forgotten catastrophe. And this despite the fact that more than 14 million inhabitants are now dependent on humanitarian aid - more than ever before. 600,000 children in Syria are chronically malnourished. We are continuing our aid projects in Syria and neighboring countries. A particular focus is on winter aid, as the cold winter months further exacerbate the plight of the population.

The situation of the more than 6.7 million internally displaced persons in Syria is particularly difficult. They often live in completely overcrowded camps or under catastrophic conditions in ruined buildings and destroyed houses. These living conditions also affect people's health. They fall ill with measles, typhoid fever and severe diarrhea. The Corona pandemic poses an additional challenge to the suffering population - there is hardly any testing capacity, not to mention protective clothing or respirators.

"More and more people are suffering from hunger"

Eighty percent of Syrians now live below the poverty line, and some 2.5 million children do not go to school. "The need for aid has continued to rise since last year. In addition to protective shelter, families increasingly lack sufficient food," reports Isabelle Freimann, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe's project officer for Syria. "More and more people are suffering from hunger."
How Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe is helping

Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe is on the ground helping: together with our Syrian partners, we are taking care of restoring housing for internally displaced people. Many of those affected have already been displaced several times during the conflict, which has lasted for more than ten years. In the cold winter months, many families lack heating oil and warm clothing.

Together with its Syrian partners, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe has therefore developed cash-for-work programs, for example, in which people are trained so that they can then work independently and earn money.

Thank you for the strong support, even in times when this conflict isn't present in media.
