Since 2011, the war in Syria has taken well over 400,000 lives and left 13.1 million people in need of aid. Now, as violence in Idlib escalates, up to 3 million people are at risk of getting caught up in the conflict. Half are children.
Please make a donation today to support the IRC. We are on the ground saving children and families by providing clean water, medicine, nutrition services and other urgent aid to as many people as possible.
The IRC's response
We first began assisting Syrians in 2012, providing emergency relief and humanitarian aid to those uprooted by war. In 2016, over 1,000 IRC workers helped more than 1 million Syrians inside their country.
This included 971,000 people treated in around 50 IRC supported clinics and mobile health teams, helping 24,000 women and girls–many survivors of assault and abuse–find safety and support, and providing an education and support to over 10,000 children and parents.
Please make an immediate donation to help us save lives in crisis areas worldwide, including Syria.
Your gift today will help us provide aid to Syrian families and refugees in more than 40 countries around the world.
