After six years of conflict, Syria is one of the most dangerous places to be a child

Right now, more than 8 million Syrian children are in danger. They face unspeakable violence, a lack of food, health care and clean water, and an increased risk of disease. Many have lost their homes, their schools and even their families.

We must do whatever we can to protect Syria’s children.

Conflict in Syria is having a devastating impact on children

Children and families in and around Syria face severe water shortages and restrictions to basic food and health care. One in four schools in Syria is destroyed, damaged or disrupted leaving more than two million children without the chance to learn. This means that the country could suffer for years after the conflict ends, as an entire generation grows up without an education – something every child deserves.

The scale of this crisis for children is unprecedented, and so must be our response. With your help, we can make sure we reach every Syrian child in danger.

How will my donation help children?

We are one of the few agencies working inside Syria, as well as being present for refugee families in surrounding countries, including Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt. We have launched our largest ever appeal to provide urgent humanitarian aid, including life-saving vaccines, water and clean water to children and families affected by the crisis in Syria.

Across the region we are providing child-friendly spaces to vulnerable children which offer learning support and psychological care, as well as being a safe space to play. We’re also working closely with education authorities to make sure that children are able to go to school.

Since the beginning of the year, over one million estimated people living in besieged and hard to reach areas inside Syria have been provided with essential supplies including health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, education and child protection services. But we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child and there are still millions of children in need of assistance. We urgently need your support to help us reach more Syrian children in danger.

Donating by phone

If you’re in the UK and would prefer to make a donation to our Syria appeal by phone, you can call our dedicated donation line: 0300 330 5580.

Please donate today and help Syria’s children now.

For the first 12 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go to children affected by the Syrian conflict. After that they will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund. 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, helping children caught in wars and disasters around the world.
