Syria Crisis Appeal
Your donations can save lives!
Unite 4 Humanity has been raising money for Syria Crisis Appeal since 2012.
A peaceful uprising against the president of Syria in 2011 has turned into a full-scale civil war. The conflict has left more than 350,000 people dead, devastated cities and drawn in other countries.
Even before the conflict began, many Syrians were complaining about high unemployment, corruption and a lack of political freedom under President Bashar al-Assad.
Over half the population of Syria has been forced to flee their homes. As the conflict rages on, families face harsh weather conditions, extreme cold winters and scorching sun heat in summer without sufficient protection.
Syrian Refugees are in urgent and desperate need of food, shelter and medical care.
Syrian Refugees in Lebanon
In Lebanon, life is a daily struggle for more than a million Syrian refugees, who have little or no financial resources. Around 70 per cent live below the poverty line. There are no formal refugee camps and, as a result, Syrians are scattered throughout more than 2,100 urban and rural communities and locations, often sharing small basic lodgings with other refugee families in overcrowded conditions.
Syrian Refugees in Jordan
In Jordan, over 655,000 men, women and children are currently trapped in exile. Approximately 80 per cent of them live outside camps, while more than 139,000 have found sanctuary at the camps of Za’atari and Azraq. Many have arrived with limited means to cover even basic needs, and those who could at first rely on savings or support from host families are now increasingly in need of help. It is estimated that 93 per cent of refugees in Jordan live below the poverty line.
Syrian Refugees in Iraq & Egypt
Iraq has also seen a growing number of Syrians arriving, hosting more than 246,000, while Egypt also provides protection and assistance to more than 126,000 Syrian Refugees.
Syrian Refugees in Turkey
Turkey has been hosting more than 3 million Syrian refugees since the start of war. Turkey has been at the forefront of helping the Syrians find a safe haven away from their homeland.
Unite 4 Humanity works hard to help, leading a coordinated effort across the region. Together with our partners and NGOs, we try our best to offer a lifeline to those in need.
We provide life-saving humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees, helping the most vulnerable with cash for medicine and food, stoves and fuel for heating, insulation for tents, thermal blankets and winter clothing. For those who have been displaced but remain in Syria, we provide shelter kits, food and medical products and equipment.
We are directly involved in some of the work, whilst a lot of our work is carried out by our contacts in Syria and in neighbouring countries.
At this moment in time our Syrian aid work is purely based on emergency basis, we are not actively providing the aid in the region but whenever there is an upsurge in conflict we actively fundraise for the affected.
We always ask people to donate generously so that when the crisis escalates, we have funds to carry out the aid work ASAP.
