Syria: 6 years on

Six years on from the beginning of the largest humanitarian crisis in living memory, the situation in Syria remains bleak. The country lies in ruins, its economy and infrastructure shattered by the devastating conflict.

Around 500,000 people have lost their lives, and 1.5 million have suffered terrible injuries. Syria’s children are paying the highest price, their childhoods blighted by trauma. 2.8 million cannot go to school.

A shocking 80% of Syrians live in poverty

13.5 million Syrian people are in desperate need of humanitarian aid. They are struggling to survive without food, clean water, warm clothing or medicine. The winter of 2015-16 has been the most brutal so far, with freezing temperatures bringing illness, pain and despair to vulnerable families.

The Syrian conflict has created the largest global displacement crisis in living memory, with 5 million Syrians forced to leave their home country. UNOCHA estimates that 6.3 million people have been internally displaced within Syria, and more than 50% of them are children. The fear and trauma they have suffered is beyond imagination. With no solution in sight, the people of Syria need us now more than ever.

Our humanitarian response

Human Appeal has two field offices and numerous warehouses strategically located inside Syria. Along with our partners, including WFP (World Food Programme) and UNOCHA, we’ve been able to provide desperate Syrian families with continuous aid, including:

  • 16,500 food parcels monthly for IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) in Northern Idlib.
  • 1,000 tons of flour monthly, ensuring that 208,000 families in Idlib and Aleppo receive fresh daily bread.
  • Access to safe, clean water for 15,000 people in Western Aleppo each day.
  • Vital healthcare for women and children via our field hospitals.
  • A new temporary camp with 500 tents and non-food essentials in Northern Idlib.
