Daraa Rapid Response

Hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in Syria’s Daraa province are facing death and destruction as a result of renewed attacks and air strikes over the last few weeks.  There have been repeated attacks on hospitals.

Over 200,000 innocent civilians have fled the area in search of safety. Many of those who are displaced are living in makeshift tents in the severe heat, with a lack of food, water and medical care.

Penny Appeal is working to provide life-saving resources to those in desperate need. We are reaching thousands of displaced people in the Daraa region with cooked meals, food hampers and vital hygiene and sanitation kits, including a range of items such as shampoo, soap, female hygiene essentials and nappies.

Donate vital food and hygiene kits to the Daraa Region

Donate to Syria


The people of Syria have been facing a devastating war for the last seven years. Official figures reveal that over 13 million people across Syria – which is above 70% of the population - are in urgent need of humanitarian aid, over 5 million of those being children.

Penny Appeal has been working with partners on the ground since the conflict began, and thanks to your generosity we have been delivering life-saving food, water and shelter. Together, we’re supporting thousands of families during their most difficult times, when they have nobody else to turn to. We have been providing nutritious, cooked meals for thousands of Syrians displaced within the country and living in temporary shelters and camps, in Ghoutta, Idlib and Alleppo

Syrian Refugee Children

The children of Syria are growing up surrounded by destruction, disease and death. More than 80 percent of Syria's children have been injured, and around 3.7 million children have been born in the past five years amidst the ongoing conflict, meaning they have never known peace.

Penny Appeal has been supporting the education of Syrian refugees in Turkey. Hundreds of Syrian refugee children living in remote areas of Istanbul have been provided with informal education activities, life skills games and psychosocial support. This has included games, cartoons and documentaries to help them understand their new cultural context. They are also provided with hygiene awareness support and given basic hygiene kits. We are also working in Beqaa Valley, Lebanon where hundreds of Syrian refugee children are being provided with psychosocial support, through sessions revolving around art, music, technology, sports, and nature.
