Syria Crisis Appeal

See the interactive appeal map
Three years of war have had a devastating impact on many Syrian families and have left more than nine million people in need of aid.  In many parts of the country the health system has effectively collapsed, water supplies have been cut and food is in short supply.
Since the beginning of the conflict, around 1.2 million houses have been damaged, with 400,000 totally destroyed. An estimated 6.5 million people are displaced inside Syria, and 2.5 million people have now fled to the neighbouring countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. Refugees are arriving at camps which are already stretched to capacity, and many families are living in crude shelters they have built themselves, with host families in overcrowded conditions or in partially finished buildings.
