2021 marks 10 years of the Syrian crisis – the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time.
Desperate to flee the violence in their homeland, thousands have died at sea or perished on land. Of those still in Syria, 11.7 million women, children and their families urgently need assistance.
We’re proud to have reached over 4.5 million people affected by the crisis in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt and Syria, with food, clean water, shelter, hygiene kits, blankets and baby items as well as psychosocial support and microfinance support.
