Cold, hungry and scared.

The horrific scenes we've seen in Aleppo show the extent of the violence Syrian children have been forced to endure.

For almost six years, many children have been living in near-constant fear. Thousands have been killed or maimed.

And now, frightened children are facing a new threat as temperatures plummet below freezing. Many have fled their homes with just the clothes on their backs and now have to sleep on frozen ground without a blanket.

Young children and babies are the most vulnerable. Many are weakened and malnourished after months under siege without proper food or healthcare.

But we're there, keeping children warm, healthy and well fed. And with your support we can help the most vulnerable children survive.

You can bring hope to Syria's children - please donate now

How your donation will help:

  • We keep children warm by providing blankets, winter clothes and fuel.
  • Inside Syria, we provide food, support hospitals, help schools to stay running and repair water systems.
  • We also provide specialist emotional support for children.
  • Despite the incredibly difficult situation, our local partners have managed to reach more than 500,000 vulnerable children in besieged areas in Syria.
  • In countries such as Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt where many children and families have fled to, we’re providing food, safe water, medicine, protection, shelter and education.
  • This is our largest ever emergency response - we've reached more than 2.4 million children across the region since the conflict started in 2011.

Your donation will help us bring vital aid to more children in Syria, and offer hope to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

Rami's story

Rami from Syria who now lives in Lebanon - donate now


Rami and his family fled the besieged town of Deir Ezzor in Syria.

"My children were so scared they were wetting themselves," says Rami's father, Hassan.

"I saw four children who were hit by the shelling, it was so tragic. I couldn't watch what was happening."

It took the family two months to travel Lebanon through the mountains on foot. They had no food so resorted to eating grass.
