Millions of Syrians and Iraqis have fled their homes, leaving with only the clothes on their backs. Organizations are responding to the crisis by providing food, shelter and medical care.
Syrians are facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with grave protection and human rights violations occurring daily. Children are particularly vulnerable to such violations as recruitment into armed groups, exploitation and abuse, including early marriage and child labour. Within the Syrian Arab Republic, some 6.5 million people have been displaced. Nearly 5 million Syrians have been registered as refugees. Many families have lost everything – including, for those who have fled the country, the protections that come with citizenship.
Neighbouring countries, including Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, have taken in millions of Syrian refugees. Many more Syrian families have risked everything to find safety outside the region.
Syrians are facing a humanitarian crisis, but you can help. Donate your money and time.
