Syrian families need your help now more than ever.

After seven years of war, Syrians are struggling to survive. More than half the country’s population has been uprooted from their homes since the conflict began in 2011. Over 5.5 million people have fled to neighbouring countries. Most live in extreme poverty, unable to feed their children, access healthcare or keep a roof over their heads.

A further 6.3 million people are displaced inside Syria, many of them in besieged and hard-to-reach-areas. In Eastern Ghouta, whole neighbourhoods were flattened in February 2018, making it one of the deadliest periods since the start of the war.

UNHCR is on the ground protecting Syrian refugees and those displaced inside Syria, but we can’t do it alone. We are critically short of funds to respond.

You can help provide Syrian families with:

  • Shelter, food, medicine and other life-saving supplies
  • Fuel for heating, thermal blankets and warm clothes
  • Access to healthcare services and schools so that Syrian children aren’t forced to miss out on their education
Support the Syrian Emergency
"Syria is the biggest humanitarian and refugee crisis of our time, a continuing cause of suffering for millions which should be garnering a groundswell of support around the world.” 
Filippo Grandi, UNHCR High Commissioner
