More people have been forced to flee their homes in Syria than in any other crisis in the world today – over 5 million Syrians have fled the country since 2011 for safety in neighbouring countries and 6.1 million are internally displaced.
As the Syria crisis enters its eighth year, it is estimated that more than 400,000 Syrians have been killed and more than one million injured.

This year an estimated 13.1 million people need humanitarian assistance, including 5.3 million children. Fighting continues to destroy hospitals and homes and hamper the delivery of much-needed lifesaving assistance.

In hard-to-reach and besieged areas of the country where 3 million people are struggling to survive, food, water and healthcare is scarce and many have nowhere to go for safety.

However, DEC member charities are working across Syria and reaching people on both sides of the conflict with lifesaving aid.
