Syria

The Syrian Civil War has left millions of children and families displaced and facing unimaginable horrors. But with your help, we're bringing hope of a better future to Syria's children.

For thousands of Syrian children 10 years of conflict has taken their childhood. 

With Covid-19 spiralling out of control, the country is struggling with a chronic shortage of hospital beds, testing kits, water and oxygen.

10 years of war has taken so much from Syria's children. Don't let it take their future. 

Now, more than ever, they need your support.

With the disastrous announcement that the UK government is to cut aid to Syria by one-third, it's more urgent than ever to give hope to Syria's children.

Kevin Watkins, chief executive of Save the Children UK, said the cut would "have a catastrophic impact".

"It could mean nearly half a million children missing out on education and more than a hundred thousand mothers and children going hungry."

9-year-old Bashir was badly injured by shrapnel to his face and eyes. He was brought to a hospital in Erbil by the Iraqi army, where he recovered with his father and two of his sisters. Bashir’s mother and one of his brothers died in a car bomb as he tried to flee Mosul.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, our partners in Syria have been working to adapt our response. We're currently raising funds to help children affected by COVID-19 in Syria and around the world - find out more about our coronavirus response in Syria here. 

We’re supporting families in Syria and surrounding countries, but we urgently need your help to reach more children.
