Syrian Refugee Crisis
In March 2011, Syria was launched into a civil war. Since then, an estimated 11 million Syrians fled their homes, seeking refuge in neighboring countries or within Syria’s borders. Those who stay in their homeland face the threat of violence and dwindling resources, while those who leave struggle with restrictive laws, dangerous border crossings, finding work and shelter, and keeping their families together and safe.
8 percent of the 5.5 million Syrian refugees live in informal refugee camps, where conditions are often poor and supplies are scarce. Overall, an estimated 13.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance as a result of the crisis in Syria.
Our charity partners are working to provide clean water, food, shelter, medical services, education, psychosocial support and other emergency assistance to Syrian refugees.
