Caught in the middle of conflict, politics and power struggles, it is families who are suffering the greatest in Aleppo and Mosul.

Faced with images of children sitting stunned and bloody in the rubble and parents weeping for the loss of their children, it’s easy to feel distraught and helpless in the face of such need and tragedy.

But there is hope.

Around 2000 years ago in the same region, a child was born who gave His all for humanity.

Because He lives, and we live, there is hope.

We can reach out to these people in need by giving today.

Aleppo, Syria

The situation in Aleppo has been called a “complete meltdown of humanity” by the UN and has played centre stage in the ongoing Syrian Civil war that has raged for almost six years.

Innocent civilians have been intentionally targeted, including the bombing of hospitals and schools, and thousands have been killed or displaced.

Our partners on the ground in Aleppo are working to help the most vulnerable families by providing food, hygiene kits, warm sleeping bags, and emergency cash.

Please donate today to help families in desperate need.

Mosul, Iraq

Right now, innocent Iraqi civilians are caught in the middle of a military offensive trying to recapture Mosul from ISIS.

The battle is expected to take months and the lives of hundreds of thousands of families are hanging in the balance.

Around 100,000 have been displaced so far from a city with a population around a million. Innocent civilians are being targeted in this conflict through booby traps and snipers.

Our partners are working in the surrounding areas receiving families fleeing the conflict, providing them with emergency winter provisions and health supplies.

Please donate today to help these families in desperate need.

“We left everything … I brought nothing with me. Leaving our village [Mosul] was a bad feeling. When we came here [to a camp where Tearfund’s partners are working] we were happy. When we wake up in the morning we are not scared. In the village we felt like anytime they [ISIS] could come and take us. Suddenly they will come and take people - some of my uncles were taken by ISIS.

The clothes I have received today will help me so much.

I came with nothing, now I have something.

I want to say, please help the Iraqi people, and thank you so much for these clothes, we are so grateful.”
