Donate to the people affected by violence in Syria:

 

International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Last December, the humanitarian situation in Syria got worse. A lot worse. And it’s still deteriorating. Tens of thousands have fled their homes, abandoning all they have. Countless others have been killed or wounded. The ICRC and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent are stepping up their efforts to help. But “more help” means “more funds.”

Islamic Relief Worldwide The current unrest in Syria has forced over 70,000 people to abandon their homes and seek safety in the neighboring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan. The estimated number of displaced Syrian’s in Lebanon is 29,150, in Jordan 22,976, in Turkey 26,281 and in Iraq 4,549. It is estimated there are more than 2000 unregistered displaced Syrians, who are afraid of publicly registering.

World Food Programme (WFP) The ongoing events in Syria continue to impact the humanitarian situation resulting in significant humanitarian needs.  Around 1 million people were identified as being in need of assistance. In addition, tens of thousands of Syrians have registered with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in neighbouring countries, particularly Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. In response, WFP – in partnership with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) – is currently providing direct food assistance to half a million Syrians and is preparing to scale up to reach more people in need of food assistance.
