The 2022 Humanitarian Needs Overview showed 14.6 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria, an increase of 1.2 million people from 2021.

Eleven years of conflict have left 8 million Syrian children in danger. Children have lost their homes, their schools and even their families. They face unspeakable violence, a lack of access to food, health care and clean water, as well as an increased risk of disease. As you may have seen in the news, the security situation has recently deteriorated in northwest Syria, putting even more children at risk.

We are working to tackle the spread of coronavirus in Syria but the conflict has destroyed many hospitals, schools and water treatment facilities. Syria is at high risk of being unable to contain the spread of the virus.

With your support, we can help protect Syria’s most vulnerable children. We must act now.

How will my donation help children?

We are one of the few organisations able to work even in besieged areas of Syria, as well as being present for refugee families in surrounding countries, including Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt.

Your support will help provide life-saving supplies, including clothes, food, clean water, medical care, education and protection to children and families who desperately need it. Across the region we are also providing Child-Friendly Spaces for vulnerable children which offer learning support and psychosocial care, as well as being a safe space to rest and play.

In 2021, Unicef and partners helped 3.8 million people receive improved and sustained access to safe water in Syria.

But we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child and there are still millions of children in desperate need of assistance.

We urgently need your support to help us reach more Syrian children before it’s too late.

For the first 12 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go towards funding Unicef’s work to support children affected by the Syrian conflict. After that donations will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, to save and protect children in emergencies around the world. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed Unicef’s funding requirements for this appeal, your one off or monthly gift will also go to our Children’s Emergency Fund.
