Four terrible years of conflict in Syria have had devastating effects on young and old alike. More than 3.8 million people have been forced from their homes and become refugees and over 200,000 people have been killed.
Please support our [Christian Aid] emergency appeal to help our partners in Lebanon, Iraq, and within Syria itself, to respond to the immediate and long-term needs of some of the most vulnerable people on Earth. Syria Appeal
The media spotlight may have shifted, but the number of vulnerable people continues to increase as the humanitarian crisis goes on. Christian Aid are working through their partners in Lebanon and Iraq to respond to the needs of refugees.
We [Christian Aid] have also supported their ACT Alliance sister agency, International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC), to provide vital assistance to people in desperate need inside Syria itself.
Thanks to your generosity, our [Christian Aid] Syria Crisis Appeal has raised more than£2 million since it was launched and has enabled our partners to provide support to communities in desperate need.
How we’re responding [Christian Aid]
Our partners [Christian Aid] have provided humanitarian essentials such as food, fuel for cooking, hygiene and sanitation kits, water containers and infant kits, cash assistance, as well as psychological support for those who are suffering as a result of the conflict.
During the bitter winter months, our partners have supported refugee families with food and fuel for cooking.
Now responding to the longer term needs of refugees, our partners are working with especially vulnerable groups such as women and people with disabilities.
