Syria Emergency Appeal
Camps are full and children are freezing to death as thousands of people have been forced to sleep outside in temperatures of 7◦C. Mothers huddle beneath plastic sheets with their children and elderly relatives, desperate to be warm and safe. But there is no escaping the bitter winter or the ongoing airstrikes. This is the largest displacement of Syrians in the history of the nine-year war. Now, with more people arriving at camps, resources are stretched and there isn’t enough to help everyone. Please help save lives now.
£70 could feed a family in Syria for a month.
£100 can provide a family fleeing bombs in Idlib with emergency food, clean water, shelter and medical aid.
£165 can provide a displaced family with blankets, waterproof protective sheets, children’s clothes, raincoats and wellington boots.
Active in Syria since 2011, Human Appeal has delivered relief efforts on the ground throughout the entirety of the conflict. Over the last 4 years, we’ve helped over 9 million people.
No life is safe in Syria
Hospitals, clinics and schools are being targeted by airstrikes and Human Appeal’s staff are now among the displaced. No life is safe in Syria. Many civilians are fleeing to the Turkey border only to find it is closed to them.
Behesti Ismail, Human Appeal’s Country Director for Turkey and Syria said:
*“When the people of Syria look out to the world they are left wondering: Where is the moral outcry?” This plea is on their behalf, and it is also up to us to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves; whether that is because they are no longer with us due to this conflict, or because they have only just been born into a world that is crumbling around them.
“Nearly 3 million people need healthcare urgently, yet hospitals have been targeted. Newborn babies are taking their first breath in freezing tents and unsanitary camps that are over capacity by the thousands, yet are still being struck with missiles.
“An immediate ceasefire is the only way to end the mass human tragedy that is unfolding. Sadly, it is too late for many and the consequences of the conflict will be felt for generations, but hundreds of thousands of people can still be saved, if we act now and show Syria that the world cares.”*
There are now reports that settlements for displaced Syrians are being hit, which is resulting in deaths, injuries and further displacements.
Human Appeal are on the ground
Our teams are on the ground right now. With your support they have been distributing lifesaving aid, including emergency food parcels to over 8,000 people, winter relief and shelter to 14,850 people and medical aid to over 9,000 people through our Al Imaan Hospital and our mobile emergency clinics. This is providing displaced families with daily critical care where many hospitals have been suspended following the attacks. We need your help to allow us to reach more vulnerable displaced families.
