Syria Emergency Appeal
Across Idlib, over 300,000 people have fled heavy airstrikes in just three weeks. Many report being bombed in their homes before escaping, with family members and children caught in the rubble.
The unbearable agony of being forced to leave home has been made even more devastating by a bitter winter and unrelenting rains that have soaked what little people have been able to escape with, leaving them no way to stay warm and dry.
Winter is has arrived in Syria, and families need your help to survive.
£165 can provide a displaced family with a winter kit, including blankets, waterproof protective sheets, children’s clothes, raincoats and wellington boots.
£135 can provide critical medicines to nine mothers and children at Al Imaan Hospital in Idlib.
£100 can help to provide a family with clean water and shelter to help those who’ve escaped with their lives this winter.
£70 provides a displaced family in Idlib with a nutritious food parcel, including local foods such as bread, pasta, beans, fruit, biscuits, and canned food.
A bitter, unforgiving winter has hit and its rains show no mercy upon those who have already lost so much.
In all, a shocking 700,000 people in Idlib have been displaced since April, seeking refuge wherever they can. Often they end up in flooded, dangerously overcrowded makeshift camps, with little more than a tent to protect them from bitter winds, torrential rain, and freezing temperatures, which have brought sickness and misery.
Supporting families fleeing bombs
In just two weeks, we’ve treated 779 women and children at Al Imaan Hospital, and we’ve also provided bread and water to 1,204 people.
Many of those fleeing violence this winter have sought treatment at Al Imaan Hospital and our mobile clinic in Idlib. But because of the huge influx of people, Al Imaan Hospital has been pushed to the brink and our medicines are almost completely out of stock.
Without your support, Al Imaan Hospital simply won’t have the medicine to continue treating people seeking safety this winter.
We also need your help to provide emergency food to 3,000 people, delivering food parcels including water, juice, milk, biscuits, nuts, soup, jam, honey and bread to 500 families that are fleeing the airstrikes in Idlib.
Please give today, and help us to support families seeking refuge from violence in unimaginably difficult winter conditions.
