Syria – Active Emergency Zone

Syria is in its fifth year of conflict. Since March 15, 2011, millions of Syrians have been living in daily turmoil: entire towns are decimated; violence abounds throughout neighborhoods; schools are closed; hospitals are overflowing with people but are undersupplied; food and clean water are scarce. Syrians, living inside Syria or as refugees in neighboring countries, are in desperate need. The United Nations has declared the Syrian conflict “the worst of the 21st century.”

According to UNHCR and OCHA, there are more than 4 million registered Syrian refugees, and 12+ million people inside of Syria in need of humanitarian aid. More than 6.5 million children have been affected by the crisis–and more than half of Syrian children no longer attend school. We must continue to pay attention to the plight of our Syrian brothers and sisters.

The content on this page serves to report on humanitarian efforts for those affected by this crisis, so while the title is “Syria,” the work spans across Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. Information about efforts for Syrians and other refugees being helped across Europe is here.
