Bringing hope to Syria's children

The long running civil war has turned millions of children into refugees while those who remain in Syria face an uncertain future. But with your help, we're bringing hope of a better future to Syria's children.

Six years of brutal war in Syria has devastated children's lives.

In parts of Syria, children are dying because they can't get the medical care they need, and families have had to eat leaves and animal feed because they can't find enough food.

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

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.

Living in constant fear of shelling, airstrikes and ongoing violence is taking a devastating toll on children and families in Syria.

Thousands have been killed or maimed. In Idlib, an alleged chemical attack has had devastating and deadly consequences for children and families.

More than 11 million people have now been forced from their homes. More than 650,000 are still trapped in besieged areas. And millions need food, water and medical care.

A teacher in the besieged town of Madaya told us: "We’ve lost a lot of young people, even children, even entire families...

All the houses were being hit with shells or mortars and of course bullets – the snipers never stop."

Conditions inside Syria are unimaginably difficult. But we continue to work with brave partners to offer a lifeline to exceptionally vulnerable children.

We urgently need your help to do more.
