Syrian Refugee Crisis: What’s Happening and How To Help

Syrian Refugee Crisis: What’s Happening and How To Help

 
 

Why are people fleeing Syria?

Since 2011, civil war and conflict between the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Syrian opposition forces, and ISIS, have resulted in more than 200,000 deaths and have caused more than half of the country’s population of 22 million citizens to flee their homes. The mass displacement of the Syrian people the worst humanitarian crises of our time.

How many people have been displaced?

The UN Refugee Agency estimates that more than 4 million people, half of whom are children, have fled to neighboring countries, and 7.4 million people are displaced internally within Syria. As the crisis worsens to the worst the world has seen in 20+ years, the need for refugee support is becoming more dire.

What are the challenges facing refugees?

  • In order to escape, many Syrian refugees become victims of smuggling and human trafficking. Seeking safety in neighboring countries, refugees risk their lives traveling on unsafe boats, trains, and trucks.
  • Thousands of displaced citizens are arriving each day to refugee camps in neighboring countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey. As the number of people fleeing from Syria grows, refugee camps are becoming even more overcrowded and struggling to meet the needs of Syrian Refugees.
  • Two million children have been affected by the conflict in Syria, making continuing education while displaced extremely difficult. Additionally, refugee camps do not have the space to provide children safe spaces to learn and play.

How are aid organizations responding?

Vetted, high-impact GlobalGiving partners are already supporting Syrian refugees. Their efforts include:

  • Delivering food and clean water, providing shelters and household essentials to families in need.
  • Continuing to provide refugees with safe access to lifesaving medical aid, including reproductive health care.
  • Supporting children whose schooling has been disrupted by the conflict, and setting up safe spaces in refugee camps for children to learn and play.
  • Providing refugees with psychosocial support to help reduce emotional consequences of traumatic stress and store a sense of hope and normalcy.

Why We Speak: Help Spread Syrian Stories
Our longstanding focus on refugee rights will be highlighted when Lost In Lebanon, a feature documentary featuring Syrians in exile in Lebanon, is released. Lost in Lebanon is not the story of the war in Syria, nor is it an account of those who have made the journey to Europe; it is the next chapter. What is happening to the 12 million who have been displaced but have absolutely nowhere to go. What are their hopes, their fears, their future?

Furthermore the children's photos will travel around the world, highlighting the real refugee problem through the eyes of children, raising worldwide awareness and sensitizing the public opinion.
Promoting Human Rights of Refugees in Europe
A major humanitarian crisis and child protection failure are unfolding across Europe. In 2015, more than one million refugees and displaced people arrived in Europe - most fleeing conflict, persecution or poverty. While aid agencies and grassroots groups have stepped in to provide crucial short-term aid, the absence of human rights centred political action means that a long-term resolution to the situation seems a distant possibility. We aim to change that.
Peace for Syrian Refugee Children
To enhance the wellbeing, resilience and psychological reintegration of children impacted by armed conflict and violence and reduce violent behavior risk, IAHV conducted till now Stress Relief and Resilience workshops for 5,560 children; Resilience and Empowerment programs for 1,658 parents; Stress Management and Professional Care for 450 social and youth workers. 310 at risk and traumatised youths underwent a deep Healing and Human values Training, while 68 were trained as peace ambassadors.
Advance Relief Efforts for Refugees in Greece
Lighthouse Relief was formed on the Greek island of Lesvos in September 2015, as thousands of refugees were arriving every day. We mobilised quickly to provide structured emergency response to the area, and - when it became apparent that people were stranded for longer periods in mainland Greece - expanded to support vulnerable groups like women, children and youth. Three years later, we remain committed to advancing a dignified and empowering humanitarian response for as long as it's needed.
Holistic Support for Refugees Arriving in Greece
by IsraAID
The "Holistic Support for Refugees Arriving to Greece" project will provide emergency aid and psychosocial support to refugees in Greece which has been the first point of entry into Europe for refugees making the treacherous journey in hope of finding asylum and refuge. Greece's resources have been overstretched, bearing the brunt of the recent mass influx of refugees for over 1.5 years.
Help Refugees at Risk in the U.S.
President Trump has signed an executive order that jeopardizes the protection and services historically afforded to refugees in the United States.

Help the IRC deliver critical assistance, including: education, livelihoods training, youth programs, and citizenship assistance to refugees and other vulnerable immigrant populations.
Empower Refugees To Build A New Life In Athens
We Need Books was founded in 2016 in response to the overwhelming refugee crisis. We have provided refugees in camps and shelters with hundreds of books in their native languages.

It will provide the more than 400,000 refugees and migrants in Athens with access to educational resources, vocational training and networking opportunities.
Self-defense Training for Refugee Women on Lesvos
"Asylum seekers fleeing war or abuse shouldn't have to hide in their tents to feel safe in Europe" (Eva Cosse, Human Right's Watch). Today, more than 1,300 women stranded in Moria refugee camp are under constant threat of gender-based violence and sexual harassment. Often, these women are forced to hide or avoid going to the bathroom in fear for their own safety. We want to teach 300 refugee women in self-defense so they can learn how to protect themselves today and in the future.

Syrian Refugee Crisis: CARE at the front lines
by CARE
The conflict in Syria has led to the killing or displacement of more than half of the country's population. It is the largest human displacement since WWII and Syrians easily represent the largest refugee group in the world today. CARE reaches Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, Yemen, and those displaced inside Syria with food, hygiene items, and emergency cash assistance.

They have also told their stories through three spectacular quilts which AP exhibits in the US and Europe as we make the case for welcoming refugees.
Child Refugee Crisis
Child refugees live in constant fear, uncertainly and instability. The conflicts taking place in countries like Syria, South Sudan, Uganda, and Bangladesh have turned over 10 million children's homes into darkened memories. Violence has become a way of life for them, while persecution makes these children especially vulnerable. Recent attacks in Syria have forced many families to flee, leaving even more children with no place to call home.
Paint murals with 300 Syrian Refugee children
Syrian refugee youth have experienced the trauma of war and displacement from their communities and now face an uncertain future in a desert refugee camp with limited opportunities or hope for the future. Through collaborative, participatory public art- making, our initiative will promote healing, resilience and a transformational experience in which Syrian artists and children will become agents of social change in their communities by creating 3 percussive sculptures and 15 murals.
Housing and Employment for Syrian Refugees
The crisis in Syria has forced hundreds of thousands of Syrian families to flee, many to neighboring Iraq. Peace Winds has been assisting families in camps by providing shelter, food, and schooling. Peace Winds is constructing housing for families living in tents, with the added benefit of employing and training refugees in construction. Peace Winds has more than 20 years of experience in Iraq with established local partnerships and is well-received by the refugees in the camps.
Let's Help Syrian Refugee Children in Serbia Now!
Over 650,000 refugees from Middle East, mainly from Syria, have entered Serbia over the last 18 months and are still coming in hundreds on daily basis. Amongst them are more than 200,000 children and over 5,000 of them are unaccompanied ones. We are trying to help them stay physically and mentally healthy. Alongside humanitarian aid, we are also trying to develop an online Q&A list for their protection, information and education on how and where they can seek medical, legal and social help.
Support Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan
The high number of Syrian refugees now living in Jordan has overwhelmed the country's healthcare system, which struggles to adjust to increased patient loads and shortages of medicines and vaccines.

The flow of refugees into camps and host communities continues to swell - far beyond initial expectations - and strain limited resources in the region. Mercy Corps is helping refugees and community members in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and within Syria by providing essentials like clothing and blankets, digging wells and building safe places for children to play and be kids.
Education For Children Inside Syria
Now in its eighth year and with no end in sight, the conflict in Syria has become the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II. Education remains central to the humanitarian response plans in Syria. To ensure access to education for internally displaced children and those living in hard-to-reach and besieged areas in Syria, UNICEF has designed a Self-Learning Program, which aims to reach 95,000 Syrian children who have limited or no access to schooling.
Save mothers and children in the Mediterranean Sea

Jordan - Syria Refugee Relief fund
by CARE
CARE is working to help Syrians meet their most urgent needs and protect their dignity. Jordan, the second refugee-hosting country in the world on a per capital basis and a country with one of the longest histories of doing so, hosts an estimated number of 1.3 million Syrians (among whom are 650,000 approx. registered with UNHCR as refugees). CARE is on the ground collaborating with partners and helping people displaced by the conflict and the communities hosting them.
Investing in the Future for a Syrian Community

Support two community centers for refugees near the Syrian border, where young women are transforming their lives through business training, women's health sessions, child care, computers, and a safe space to build community.
Bringing Help & Hope to Syrian refugees in Jordan
The Syrian conflict began almost 7 years ago. Jordan has received over 600,000, Lebanon more than 1 million. GHNI staff in both countries are working to offer dignity to families seeking safety. Providing immediate shelter, food and water, as well as hygiene items often launches healing for those who have seen such horrific actions and experienced unspeakable trauma. Our staff are trained to provide a helping hand while refugees work to rebuild in a new country, finding ways to make a home.

The number of people, especially refugees, seeking help at the Tafel has sharply increased. Local Tafel initiatives have a variety of ways to address the challenges like language barriers, food and volunteer shortages or increased conflict potential, and this fund offers financial support for the best concepts.
Education Versus Lost Generation!
Today, Turkey is home to the largest refugee population in the world with nearly 4 million refugees coming from over 60 nations. Having a sustainable life in Turkey is the part that you can take action by supporting education not only by encouraging over 1 million refugee children to get enrolled in schools but also continue their education at university. Fight against "lost generation", child labor and marriage and be part of the resilience and empower youth to build their countries' future!
Help Strengthen the Resilience of Syrian Refugees
Now in its fifth year, the Syrian civil war has sparked one of the greatest population exoduses in modern history, with more than four million Syrians fleeing to neighboring countries, and 7 million displaced internally within Syria. Since July 2013, Concern Worldwide has worked with displaced persons inside Syria and with refugees and vulnerable host families in Lebanon and Turkey to meet basic needs, improve access to health care, and provide psycho-social support.
Syrian Refugee Crisis
More than 12 million people have been impacted by the 5-year war, and nearly 4 million have fled to neighboring countries of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, where World Vision is providing aid.

Feed & Empower Over 5000 Refugees in Greece
The Food Project delivers fresh fruit, vegetables & dry food to over 5000 refugees stranded in Greece. Through operating in 17 refugee sites and partnering with 15 organisations, each family receives two food packs a week. The project gives malnourished children access to the vital nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. It allows families to cook for themselves, empowering individuals and upholding dignity. A project that aims to enhance the health and well-being of those fleeing war.
Giving citizens a say in development
We believe people affected by aid should have a say in how it happens. Too often development and humanitarian organizations concentrate on reporting to donors rather than really engaging with, and listening to, the people they are supposed to serve. We help these organizations harness feedback from the people they seek to help, and use this data to improve their performance leading to better outcomes for all.
Social Health Care for Healing Syrian Refugees
In any war or conflict, it is the children who are the most vulnerable and devastated. Children are the largest and fastest growing number of victims in the Syrian conflict, and women are the 2nd. We are working to heal a whole generation of Syrian children from the deep and life draining trauma of violence and rebuild devastated families. Our Social Health Care Program conducts disaster health care field clinics and trains a growing pool of local therapists in emergency trauma recovery skills.
Bringing Help and Hope to Lebanon's Refugees
Refugees fleeing violence in Serbia, Iraq and Syria have established their own "camp" in Lebanon making a long-term community as best as they are able. Working with UNHCR, these refugees have established latrines. Working with GHNIs team, they've dug a well for clean water and begun growing vegetables and fruit in a nearby plot. Recently, working together, they've begun educating young children in a "home-school" setting. Please help continue to develop a community of dignity and belonging.
Dignity for displaced women and girls in Lebanon
Women and girls displaced by armed conflict suffer most from not having suitable accommodation or access to a bathroom and fresh water. Many live in shared shelters or abandoned buildings without a change of clothing or the means to attend to their hygiene needs. A lack of sanitary pads and clean underwear prevents women and girls from going out and can also cause infections and skin disease. The project will provide clothing and a supply of sanitary pads to restore dignity and well-being.
Rise Now for the Syrian Refugee Children
Today, more around 2.5 million Syrian Refugees are living in Turkey. Around 50% of this population is children.

Give solar powered electricity to refugee families
Electricity is an essential need for everybody. Imagine living in a tent in a refugee camp where you don't have it.

We are changing this on Kara Tepe camp in Lesvos, Greece! We are installing solar panels and contributing to the environment by using renewable energy. Fitting our innovative Camp to Campus philosophy.
Empowering 80 people with disabilities in Iraq

Operation Mercy empowers people with disabilities and their families by providing assistive devices, physical therapy and emotional resilience programs. Currently, Operation Mercy serves 80 clients and their families.
Clean Water for 200 Displaced Syrian Families

Syrian refugees are facing longer and more uncertain time periods in camps. In Kara Tepe, a refugee camp for the 1200 most vulnerable cases, we are empowering Syrian women by providing them with weekly, capacity building activities with nutrition, inspiration, consistency, culture sharing, and a stress relief from the difficult period in their lives. We believe that by empowering women, we are also helping their families, kids, increasing livelihood and strengthening the community.

Emergency Relief for Refugee Families in Greece
There is a refugee crisis at Europe's door. The reason we talk about a "crisis" is not because of the number of refugees but because of the incapacity of Europe to deal with the problem in an organized and predictable way. There is a need for all European countries to cooperate with solidarity in order to confront this problem with cooperation and goodwill. The Greek islands receive 2.500 refugees every day.
