Summary

Eight years of armed conflict in Syria have caused millions of people to leave their homes in search of a safe haven. Fleeing for their lives, refugees are forced to leave all that they have behind. This fund will support relief efforts by organizations working in the area who are providing emergency assistance and ongoing support to those in need.

Challenge

Since 2011, the ongoing conflict involving the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Syrian opposition forces, and ISIS has resulted in more than 400,000 deaths and caused more than half of the country's 22 million citizens to flee their homes. The UNHCR estimates that more than 5.7 million people, half of whom are children, have fled to neighboring countries, and 6.1 million people are displaced internally within Syria, making it the largest exodus of refugees in more than two decades

Solution

This fund will support life-saving assistance and relief efforts for Syrians displaced by conflict, both within Syria and in neighboring countries. Your support will help survivors and victims get necessary immediate relief supplies like food and hygiene kits, as well as provide long-term support through activities such as building water systems, providing school supplies, job training, and public outreach to increase awareness and understanding of the crisis.

Long-Term Impact

Our partners are working to ensure that Syrian refugees and their families can lead safe, hopeful, and productive lives. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds are used; subscribers will receive these reports via email.
