Syria Emergency Appeal
Violence has escalated in Syria, putting millions of innocent lives at risk. At least 40 people have been killed as a result of air strikes and an explosion in the province of Idlib. In the besieged area of Eastern Ghouta, 126 people have lost their lives in bombing campaigns since the end of December, including 29 children and 28 women.
Within the last month, more than 70,000 people have been displaced across Syria. In Idlib, makeshift camps for homeless civilians are severely overcrowded and facilities like toilets and showers are completely overwhelmed. Some services being stretched to 4 times their capacity.
In Eastern Ghouta, families are trapped under tight siege conditions, unable to escape when bombs fall from the sky. Food and medical supplies are still being blocked from entering the area, leaving 400,000 people vulnerable to malnutrition. Babies and children are most at risk. Illnesses and injuries are going untreated due to a lack of basic medicines and first aid essentials.
Life is a waking nightmare for displaced Syrian families
Vulnerable families who have fled from bombs and bullets are in urgent need of shelter, food, clean water, medical attention and WASH facilities. Their homes have been destroyed and they have nowhere else to turn. Many have been wounded by the ongoing airstrikes and even more are traumatised by the horrors they have witnessed.
Sub-zero temperatures are dramatically reducing the chances of survival for babies and small children living in IDP camps and besieged areas of Syria. They have no warm clothes or blankets to protect them from the winter cold. Parents are reduced to burning plastic and bits of rubbish to keep their little ones from freezing.
How you can help
Human Appeal is on the ground in Syria, ready to respond to this shocking humanitarian crisis. Our team plans to support 20,000 people in desperate need of emergency aid by providing winter kits to families and flour to local bread factories. However, we can do nothing without your help.
Just £65 will provide a Syrian family of four with enough nutritious food for a whole month, allowing them to eat full meals every day. £100 will provide a vulnerable family with clothes, blankets and fuel vouchers so they can stay warm in the freezing weather. £165 will buy both nutritious food and clothing, blankets and fuel vouchers, keeping a desperate family with defenceless young children well-fed, warm and protected from the bitter cold.
