This Ramadan, end the suffering. Send your support to Syria today.
2021 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Syrian Civil War, and the continuation of this ongoing brutal conflict. Syrians are suffering, and their situation is getting worse.
Right now 80% of people in Syria are living in poverty, 9.3 million people suffer from food insecurity, 15.5 million people are going without clean water and 2.4 million children have no access to education.
10 Years of Syrian Conflict
With an estimated 11.7 million Syrians in urgent need of humanitarian aid, it’s clear to see that a decade of conflict has ravaged this country and the innocent people within it. Attacks on homes, schools, hospitals and other important infrastructure has decimated entire communities.
Within Syria, 6.2 million people are internally displaced, and 5.6 million Syrians have become refugees after fleeing to neighbouring countries for safety. This is the largest displacement of people since WWII and many are struggling to survive, living in overcrowded, makeshift camps.
Since the war began, Penny Appeal’s emergency responders have been delivering aid in Syria, helping an amazing 141,466 Syrian people in the last 10 years.
We’ve distributed food, medical supplies, hygiene items, tents, clothing, and fuel to vulnerable communities, as well as supporting a Mobile Health Clinic and helping with shelter renovations. But we can do more.
Donate to Syria now, and continue to help people survive this terrible war.
Coronavirus and Crisis in Syria
Even before the spread of Covid-19, the Syrian health care system was crumbling with over 50% of public hospitals closed down.
Right now, Penny Appeal are on the ground in Syria, providing essential Food Packs and Hygiene Kits to those affected by the deadly coronavirus, as well as supplying hospitals and health centres with Coronavirus Testing Kits, facemasks and Protective Kits to keep the nation safe.
After a decade of war and terror, and with millions of cases of Covid-19 plaguing the country, terrified displaced Syrians are left wondering if anyone really cares.
But we care. And together, we can make a difference. Every donation – however small – helps the Syrian people to survive.
Due to the complex nature of disasters, our provisions may be changed so that we can adapt to people’s most urgent needs. For example, if there is an outbreak of cholera in the aftermath of this disaster, we may need to use some of our funds to provide life-saving Hygiene Kits or Medical Packs. You can rest assured that your donations will go towards helping vulnerable Syrians in the best, most efficient, ways possible. Thank you!
