Innocent Syrian families need your help. Fleeing for their lives, thousands left their homes with nothing but the clothes on their back.
After two years of conflict, the situation in Syria remains dire. Families have been torn apart, communities ruined and schools and hospitals destroyed. The crisis has driven over 1.5 million Syrian refugees into neighboring countries with thousands more pouring across Syrian borders every single day. Around 50 per cent of these refugees are children.
When Syrian children and families finally arrive at a safe place, they are traumatized, scared and vulnerable. Nineteen-year-old Bushra recalls the terror inside Syria, “They were shelling from sunrise to sunset. We would listen to the sounds of the shells to see where they came from. There were times we had to sleep in the toilet out of fear.” Bushra fled with her two small children to safety in Lebanon. With your kind donation UNHCR can help refugees like Bushra and her children receive the life-saving relief and support they desperately need.
UNHCR is doing all it can to help the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees under our care, just like Bushra and her children. Yet the needs far outstrip the available resources. Additional funds are urgently needed. Please donate today so that we can continue our life-saving work.
