Civil war began in Syria in March 2011 and has been unrelenting. Families have lost livelihoods. Babies have lost parents. Children have lost dreams. Over the course of the war, we’ve been committed to the people of Syria — whether displaced within their country or as refugees outside it — along their journey to safety and healing.
More Displaced with Fewer Options
Inside Syria, innocent people are being attacked. Conflict is pushing masses of displaced families into northern Syria. On top of that, health facilities are routinely targeted and bombed — only about half of them have been left unscathed. The injured, sick, and traumatized need urgent medical care. Pregnant women, young children, and the elderly are especially vulnerable.
As the war continues, it’s harder and harder to find medical care in the hardest-hit places.
Keeping Clinics Open in Northern Syria
While some organizations are leaving the region, we’re going in. Your support helps keep medical clinics open in northern Syria. These clinics provide urgent care to hundreds of patients every day. With your help, Syrian doctors and nurses get paid for their dangerous and life-saving work so that they, too, can survive and stay in a region that so desperately needs them. It also funds operating costs like fuel for generators, so clinics can have electricity.
Through our partnership with International Blue Crescent, we send regular shipments of critically-needed medical supplies to clinics every month. Without these basic supplies — things like surgical tools and IV supplies — more people would die.Syrian Refugees in Lebanon Syrian Refugees in Turkey
