Since 2011, more than 4 million Syrians have fled to countries like Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. Millions more are displaced inside Syria. The situation within the country doesn’t seem to be improving, but your donations are helping to make the lives of refugee families a little easier.

Last week, your donation supported 16 organizations in their efforts to support refugees in Lebanon, Greece, Jordan, Turkey, Germany, Serbia and Iraq. Read more about the grants made below:

  • 3 Generations: To finish a feature film that follows four Syrian refugees displaced in Lebanon, as well as related short films.
  • Bridge to Turkiye Fund: To support education needs for Syrian refugee children aged 3-6 in Urfa, Turkey through production, distribution, and delivery of skill- development-focused education kits.
  • Circle of Health International: To support clinical volunteers, stock COHI's mobile pharmacy, and cover maintenance costs for the mobile clinic.
  • Community Foundation Cologne: To support the reFOODgees project, which connects refugees to each other and their community through cooking and sharing food.
  • Concern Worldwide: To map the existing services available to Syrian refugees in Turkey through the government, create a referral network to help people access these services, and expand an existing fund that fills gaps in services through e-vouchers or in-kind support.
  • Days for Girls International: To set up a sewing cooperative for Syrian refugee women in Lebanon.
  • Do Your Part: To provide supplies including seeds, cabinets, classroom tables, and cots in the Oinofyta refugee camp in Greece.
  • INSAN Association: To provide education and psychosocial support for Syrian refugees in one school and in three refugee camps.
  • International Humanistic Psychology Association: To support psychosocial care for refugees in Germany.
  • IsraAID: To support psychosocial care for refugees in Greece.
  • Middle East Children's Alliance: To cover the cost of sending a 40-foot container of donated medical supplies to Lebanon.
  • Near East Foundation: To help Syrian refugees achieve economic self-sufficiency and resilience in Jordan and Lebanon.
  • Open Learning Exchange:. To provide Arabic content and teachers on literacy, numeracy, and ESL in a library for Syrian refugee girls.
  • Pomoc deci: To provide psychosocial support and basic humanitarian aid to refugee children and their parents in camps in Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, and Turkey.
  • RED International: To support food and hygiene kit distributions to Syrian refugees and internally displaced people in Iraq.
  • Refugees International Japan: To provide preschool education to 110 Syrian refugee children in Lebanon.


We’ll update you in the coming months on the positive change these organizations are having on the lives of refugees in Europe and the Middle East.  Thank you for doing your part to make the world a better place!

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
