Syria Crisis Appeal

Half a million children are now crammed in camps near the Turkish border with no access to the basics of survival; a warm place to sleep, clean water, nutritious food, and education.

As the conflict enters its tenth year on 15 March 2020, this suffering shows no signs of abating.

Please donate now.

Relentless bombardment in North-western Syria has led to catastrophic consequences for hundreds of thousands of children and women.

More children and families are arriving at camps hungry, cold and deeply distressed by what they have witnessed and experienced. They’re being squeezed beyond breaking point and our partners on the ground are overwhelmed by the scale of the needs.

“Children come to us on a daily basis in Syria hungry, cold, and deeply distressed by what they have witnessed and experienced. Many of those living in Idlib now come from other parts of Syria and have known nothing but displacement and war in their short lives. Boys and girls aged five or six can name every type of bomb by its sound, but sometimes can barely write their name having missed out on the chance of an education. No child should ever be forced to experience the suffering and upheaval these children have. We are working to support them but cannot reiterate enough: only a lasting ceasefire can put an end to this misery.”
