Syrian children urgently need our help.
The bombing of a humanitarian aid convoy with supplies meant for children and families, and now new and intense fighting after the break-down of the latest cease-fire has hit children hard.
"Nearly 2 million people in Aleppo are once again without running water" says Hanaa Singer, UNICEF Representative in Syria, in response to the latest attacks.
"Depriving children of water puts them at risk of catastrophic outbreaks of waterborne diseases and adds to the suffering, fear and horror that children in Aleppo live through every day".
Today there is no place worse in the world to be a child, than in Syria.
Almost 6 years of prolonged violence and war has claimed many innocent young lives, and continues to impact children each day. The future for children in Syria hangs in the balance.
UNICEF is responding in Syria, delivering billions of litres of fresh water every day, as well as providing children across with food, medicine, safe places to shelter from the fighting and the chance to learn in child friendly spaces. But more help is needed, now.
UNICEF is one of the few international humanitarian organisations operating in Syria. We do so because children their need us, and we need you.
Your donation today will be a life-saving one.
How can I help children?
UNICEF is one of the few organisations working for children inside Syria and in surrounding countries, as well as for child refugees travelling across Europe. The children critically need clean water, food, warmth, and to get back to school. You can help these children by making a donation that helps provide urgent life-saving supplies to children affected by the Syrian Crisis.
Your donation could help to:
- Get kids back into school or to temporary learning centres provided by UNICEF
- Setup child friendly spaces along the major refugee routes to Europe
- Provide food, water and blankets to children in refugee camps
- Provide psycho-social support to children traumatised by conflict
- Give Syrian children back their childhoods
Please give generously to help children in Syria and surrounding refugee camps stay warm, healthy, and safe.
