Your urgent donation is a lifeline to the most vulnerable Syrian refugee and displaced families.
As we enter the tenth year of the Syria crisis, Syrian refugee and displaced families need our help more than ever. Separated from their homes and communities, they live amid extreme poverty and uncertainty; only worsened by the pandemic and restrictions.
“Before… my husband worked for a day or two per week and this helped us get by. Now it’s been four months that we haven’t paid rent,” Bodour, Syrian refugee mother living in Lebanon.
The lives of refugees are severely affected by the lockdown, economic downturn and price hike. In Lebanon, for example, around 78% of refugees reported having difficulties in buying food due to lack of money, and 70% had to reduce their food consumption, while 93% of Syrian refugee families have sank further into debt.
UNHCR is working tirelessly to help the most vulnerable families through providing them with urgent cash aid to pay for their most basic needs like rent, food, water and medicine. We are also providing urgent aid such as hygiene kits and soap, and enhancing water, sanitation and healthcare services to protect them from the COVID-19 threat.
Thousands of refugee and displaced families depend on our support to survive.
