The Syrian conflict has unfolded on our screens for six years, but you have the opportunity to change the headlines for a child caught in the war. Each of us can help change the news for the children of Syria.
We have seen and heard innocent children being bombed in their beds, trapped under siege and forced from their homes.
It’s sad and outrageous to see this on the news night after night. After six years of carnage, we can feel helpless and hopeless.
But there is hope. UNICEF teams are on the ground in Syria and refugee camps, delivering emergency water, nutrition and medical supplies to change the news for children in crisis. You can help us reach more children, fast.
Every day, we meet children who feel trapped in an adult’s war and forgotten by the world. Some are living under siege, cut off from the food, water and medicines they need to survive. Others are fleeing from violence with only the clothes on their backs, arriving at refugee camps with none of the everyday essentials they need to live in dignity.
Children are desperate for safe water and first aid kits. Desperate for the little things like soap and toothpaste. Desperate to know someone still cares.
UNICEF is delivering emergency supplies to help children survive and look forward with determination.
How can I help?
We need your help to provide children in the Syrian crisis with:
- Therapeutic food
- Clean toilets
- Safe places and shelter
- Trauma counselling
- Winter clothing
When 10-year-old Ahmed fled from brutal violence in Aleppo, a box of warm winter clothes brought a beaming smile back to his face.
When eight-year-old Huda lost her water supply, UNICEF trucked in regular deliveries to help her survive. We showed her she’s not alone and brought back hope. Today, she’s determined to grow up and become a paediatrician.
Every child saved is a good news story but a staggering 8.4 million children are waiting for emergency aid. UNICEF needs your help to replenish our supplies to reach more children now.
It’s time to shape a better story for Syrian children. Your donation can provide life-saving aid throughout Syria and where children are living as refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey and Iraq.
Help UNICEF change the news: donate to deliver emergency supplies.
