Syria Crisis Appeal: donate now to help children
Since fighting first broke out in Syria in March 2011, the crisis has unfolded to become a large-scale civil war, affecting more than 9 million people across the region, including millions of children. So far, the fighting has tragically claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people.
Save the Children is working with Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, providing families with the basics they need, including food, clothing and shelter for children and families who are facing extremely difficult conditions. We are working to ensure children now living as refugees still have access to school, emotional support and recreational activities.
We have so far reached more than 1 million people, including 710,000 children.
We save children's lives wherever they are, whatever it takes
Save the Children responds where help is needed most. This past year Save the Children reached more than 7.6 million children in 53 emergencies, delivering life-saving healthcare, food and clean water to children affected by floods, famines, earthquakes and armed conflict, and helping children recover afterwards by providing quality education, rebuilding communities and providing safe spaces for children to play.
When a disaster strikes, there's no time to lose. From experience we know that the sooner we can deliver assistance, the more lives we can save. The problem is that no one knows when the next earthquake, flood or tsunami will strike.
Having the funds in place before an emergency strikes means we can get to work straight away. We don’t lose precious time waiting for public or government support. By becoming a regular donor you can help us to deliver immediate life-saving aid to children and families affected by disaster. Responding to an emergency is a race against time. Your support buys us time to save lives.
