Your gift provides clean water, food, shelter and protection to refugee and displaced families.
As we enter the tenth year of the Syria crisis, refugee and displaced families need help more than ever. For Syrian families who are observing the holy month today far from their homes and communities, faced with poverty, hardship, and uncertainty, Ramadan is bitter sweet.
Since the announcement of ceasefire in northwest Syria on 6 March 2020, humanitarian needs inside Syria remain overwhelming. The most acute emergency needs are for shelter, water, sanitation and hygiene, food and protection for those affected by the conflict. More than 960,000 Syrians were displaced since 1 December 2019, and more than 80% of them are women and children.
UNHCR is scaling up efforts to respond to the ongoing Syria crisis, providing vital support to families in need wherever they are, as well as ensuring that Syrian refugees and IDPs are included in both national and global responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But we can’t do it alone. Every gift counts this Ramadan.
