Desperate people continue to flee ISIS-controlled areas in northeast Syria to Al Hol camp. Due to an earlier lack of food, water and health care, at least 100 people have already died on the way to the camp or shortly after arriving. Nearly all of them are children. People are arriving at the camp exhausted and extremely hungry, their clothing in tatters. Many have recent trauma injuries caused by walking on mines or shrapnel.
The International Rescue Committee is providing round-the-clock care in the camp, racing against time to reach those who most need medical attention first. Families have been given emergency kits with critical supplies, and small heaters to help them stay warm. The IRC team is also working to reunite unaccompanied children with their families, and prevent further separations. All of this is only possible with the support of our generous donors.
Please make an immediate donation to support our work in Syria, and in more than 40 countries worldwide.
Since 2011, the war in Syria has taken well over 400,000 lives and left 13.1 million people in need of aid. The International Rescue Committee is on the ground saving children and families by providing clean water, medicine, nutrition services and other urgent aid to as many people as possible.
When you support the IRC, you do much more than help refugees survive: you restore hope, dignity and enable people forced to flee their home to rescue their own futures. Show your humanity, donate today.
