Your gift to the Syria Crisis Appeal will provide urgent medical care and emergency relief for mums, dads, and children who are fleeing for their lives.
Imagine you wake to a day like any other. You go about your usual routine… and then the shelling begins.
Your home is under gunfire. Your children aren’t safe. You have no choice but to flee for your life.
You gather your family and join the thousands of others who are also leaving their homes in search of safety… where will you all find help?
On 9 October, the Turkish government launched a military offensive in northeast Syria. Innocent families were caught in the crossfire – claiming lives and forcing those left to flee their homes.
The numbers are staggering.
108,514 people (nearly half of them children) are currently stranded… internally displaced in Syria. 13,378 more have reached the relative safety of Iraq… which could grow to as many as 50,000 in the months to come.
Despite a ceasefire, localised fighting has been persistent.
The Syrian war is now well into its eighth year and its toll on innocent families continues to grow.
They’ve already lost so much. Your help is urgently needed to provide medical care for sick and injured mums, dads, and children. Your help is needed to provide emergency relief that will save lives.
When you give to the Syria Crisis Appeal, your generosity means mobile medical care in Syria and Iraq for families who have fled conflict and violence. It will provide lifesaving food and nutritional support for severely malnourished children. Clothing and blankets to help stranded families survive the deadly winter months… which are now fast approaching. And urgently needed water and sanitation in already overcrowded boarder camps.
Today, your generous gift will save innocent lives.
Thank you so much for helping to provide urgent emergency relief and medical care for families who have been affected by terrible violence.
