Over a decade of war and destruction, paralysing international sanctions, the debilitating Covid-19 pandemic and a massive earthquake have left millions of people in Syria out in the snow, homeless and with nowhere to turn to. Regardless of political beliefs, religious creeds, and polarising divisions, now is the time to help these people that have lost everything and have been living from one trauma to another tragedy.
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake has struck southern Turkey and northern Syria. In Syria, the areas affected are those administered by the government, including Aleppo, and the Idlib province, considered the last opposition stronghold in Syria. Of 4.6million people living in Idlib, over 3 million are displaced by the war. People have been living either in camps, tents or buildings damaged by the war and years of abandonment. Years of civil war have divided the country, now is the time to help everyone
There is an immediate need for fuel for medical vehicles and facilities, tents, blankets, mattresses, tarpaulins, heaters, food, water, medical supplies, and much more to prevent as much suffering as possible. Your donations can help save as many lives as possible. The low winter temperature adds misery to a catastrophic situation. Our partners, the voluntary Blu Marists group in Aleppo, have been active since the beginning of the war and have always helped and supported anyone in need.
People don't know what to do, or where to go to be safe. They need anything, from clothing to food to accommodation. Before the earthquake, 86% of Syrian lived below the poverty line. This country has already suffered a lot because of the war and today, again, feels punished by the earthquake. The end of the cruel international sanctions would open up Syria to its future reconstruction. Now it needs your help and your donations to survive yet another tragedy. Now is the time to help all Syrians.
