10 Years of Devastation in Syria

The crisis in Syria has reached a grim milestone as we mark a decade of crisis – a decade of devastation and dire suffering.

For the past 10 years, the brutal conflict in Syria has left millions of people displaced, living in constant fear, hunger and suffering. They must not be forgotten.

With the rise of Covid-19, the crippled healthcare system is facing its greatest fear as the deadly disease spreads. Doctors are risking their lives in hospitals that can’t afford masks and gloves to keep them safe.

Today, more than 11 million people within Syria are in need of humanitarian aid. Many of them are orphans, widows and elderly who cannot wait any longer.

Your support is needed to provide food, shelter and medical care to those who need it most.

Donate now and help us provide urgent relief today.

Islamic Relief is on the ground now in Syria.

Islamic Relief has been on the ground for over 18 years in Syria. As the pandemic forced organizations to pull back their operations, Islamic Relief is able to continue its operations and stand by the people of Syria.

As one of the largest aid organizations still operating in northern Syria, the generosity of our supporters means Islamic Relief remains as a lifeline for many. Through our shared global efforts in the past year, Islamic Relief has provided food to over 770,000 displaced people, vital healthcare support to 1.2 million people and medical necessities to 84 health facilities.

And yet, there is still so much more that needs to be done.

  • Emergency shelter: Help us to continue providing emergency shelter to those struggling to survive without protection or a tent to call home.
  • Food: Help us to continue providing urgent food support. We are the World Food Programme’s main partner distributing fresh bread and ready-made meals in Syria.
  • Medical care: Help us to continue bringing vital medical care to communities without access to hospitals. Our mobile emergency unit is providing daily critical care where many hospitals have been suspended following attacks.

Help us reach the countless voices pleading to be heard today.

Background on the Crisis

Over half of Syria’s population is dependent on humanitarian aid to survive in what is considered one of the worst humanitarian crises. This crisis has seen the largest movement of refugees in recent history, triggering a cycle of poverty, and uncertain futures.

Brutal conflict and trauma has plagued over 11 million people, robbing children of homes, scattering families, leaving behind countless casualties, and deteriorating living conditions.

A healthcare system on the brink of exhaustion can do little to mitigate the threat of Covid-19, as life saving intensive care beds, ventilators and oxygen are in short supply with little hope of vaccinations in the near future.

Earlier this year, over 40,000 people in Northern Syria were overwhelmed by additional tragedy with heavy rains and flash flooding. The rains have washed away food stocks and increased the threat of fatal diseases. In one camp, over 90% of the population is eating one meal or less per day.

As they enter into a second decade of crisis, the Syrian people must not be forgotten.
Your urgent support is needed to help save lives today.
