What's Happening and How to Help

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.

The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Turkey and Syria Earthquake Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.

Educate 100 Children with Disabilities in Syria
In Syria, over 10,000 children with physical disabilities face educational challenges. Already burdened by the birth defects and war injuries, living in makeshift camps far from schools, they lack the necessary support and resources to continue their studies. Our goal is to extend a helping hand to these students, enabling them to receive quality education and thrive in society. With your support, we can empower more than 100 students with physical challenges. Help them learn and grow.
Support Student Mental Health in Northern Syria

Now is time to help all the Syrians
While all our eyes are focusing on the ongoing suffering in Gaza and Israel, I ask you not to forget the children in Aleppo. Years of war, paralysing international sanctions, Covid-19 and a massive earthquake have left millions of people in Syria out in the cold, 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.

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.
