Since 2011, the unrest in Syrian has grown, with violence spreading throughout the country. It is estimated that 12.2 million people within Syria need humanitarian assistance, with more than half the pre-crisis population being displaced internally and or as refugees in neighbouring countries. Often, Syrians are displaced multiple times. Four out of five Syrians are living in poverty, and two-thirds live in extreme poverty. Every aspect of life is affected, and there are overloads in basic health care services and decreased access to food and water.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent works to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable people affected by the Syrian crisis, including food and non-food aid, health, livelihoods and food security, and building capacity to more effectively respond to the needs of those affected by conflict. Often, Red Cross staff and volunteers operate in risky and life-threatening conditions.
This project assists those affected by the on-going crisis in Syria.
