From today, passengers on any of easyJet's flights can donate to our emergency appeal for the children of Syria through an on-board collection.

The emergency appeal for Syrian children caught up in the current crisis is part of our Change for Good partnership with the airline.

Passengers will be able to donate in any currency and on any one of over 43,000 flights until 15 March. 

The number of refugees fleeing the Syrian crisis is expected to grow to over a million, half of whom are children.

Money raised through passenger donations will help provide essential clothes, blankets and life-saving healthcare to the hundreds of thousands of children struggling to survive extreme winter temperatures in the refugee camps which surround the country. It'll also give children the chance to get back to school and continue their education. 

Donate to our Syria children's appeal

Our partnership with easyJet has raised over £1 million for UNICEF's life-saving work for children since July 2012.

"Since the launch of the Change for Good partnership, easyJet passengers have already shown tremendous generosity," said David Bull, UNICEF UK's Executive Director.

"Let’s hope they can do it again so we can keep the innocent children caught up in the Syrian crisis warm, safe and healthy in a time of desperate need."
