Syrian refugee families need
your help

  • They‘re highly vulnerable in winter when temperatures drop below freezing.
  • Most children have experienced the death of a family member, had their home bombed, or suffered a war-related injury. 
  • Displaced families inside Syria can’t afford to buy enough food, where most of the population survive on less than $2.90 a day.

Your donation will make a difference

Your donation will help provide:

  • Winter supplies: blankets, mattresses, and heating.
  • Child-friendly spaces: spaces where children are safe from abuse or conscription into the conflict, and can receive education, counselling and places to play.
  • Food aid: monthly food baskets and vouchers to families most in need.
  • Small business start-ups: livelihood training and small business support to help families provide for themselves.

We pride ourselves on spending under 25% on admin costs. Learn more in our financial information.

Noura’s Story 

“Before the conflict we were living a very good happy life. I used to live in a big house and my family owned a lot of land. When ISIS arrived they killed eight of my relatives in one day, and they killed my oldest daughter. She was 14 years old. This is when we fled to Lebanon.

When we arrived in Lebanon, I asked the driver, ‘what are those tents? Who are the people living in those tents?’ The driver replied, ‘what do you think? Those are refugees. Where did you think you were going to stay? In an apartment? No, you are going to live in a tent like all the others.”

A widow, Noura* is doing her best to support herself and her two teenage children.

“In this area, the church is the only one to support us. No one else is helping. I always ask this question of myself: without the church, what would I do? How would I live? I thank them a lot because without this help and support there would be no support for us. I hope this support will continue.”

Thanks to supporters like you, the local church was able to supply Noura and her children with blankets, mattresses, and fuel for their stove to keep them warm.

There are many more people like Noura who need our support. Please donate to help people like Noura and her family.
