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.
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.
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:
We cannot continue this vital life-saving work without your continued support. For just £65, you can provide a food parcel to feed the Syrian people still trapped in besieged locations.
Without you, vulnerable Syrian families cannot survive and Syria’s children will become a lost generation. Please give them the gift of hope. You can save precious lives today.
