With the ongoing civil war in Syria, the Syrian crisis has displaced locals and affected over 5 million children who have been forced to live in areas where basic infrastructure doesn’t exist. Below is information on how our emergency response programs are helping and the support you provide when you donate to the Syrian crisis.
Save the Children is on the ground responding to the Syrian crisis with our aid and development programs. We work closely with communities throughout Syria and in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. For over 8 years we have been providing support and aid to children & their families in Syria.
Our Emergency Response Programs And How Your Syria Relief Donation Helps
Our emergency response programs provide the following for children who have had to flee their homes:
- Hygiene services
- Education and recreational activities
- Child protection
- Emotional support
We also support health centres & hospitals across Syria and have specialist teams that help children to overcome traumatic experiences and support them in returning to school.
Your Syria relief donation helps us improve the lives of Syrian children who have known nothing else but conflict. Children affected by the Syrian crisis experience psychological stress with many displaying symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), becoming more aggressive, turning to drugs and developing speech impediments. 73% of your Syria relief donation goes directly to program expenditure.
