As Ramadan approaches, millions of families in Syria are facing unprecedented challenges. The ongoing conflict, coupled with economic hardships and displacement, has left many struggling to secure basic necessities, including food, shelter, and healthcare.

Syria continues to be one of the top ten countries worldwide facing significant food insecurity. An estimated 12.9 million Syrians, comprising over half of the population, are experiencing hunger in 2024. Additionally, another 2.6 million individuals are on the verge of becoming food insecure.

With limited access to basic necessities, Ahmed and his family face numerous challenges, particularly during Ramadan. Food scarcity, lack of clean water, and inadequate healthcare are constant concerns. Despite their hardships, Ahmad and his wife Fatima strive to in-still a sense of hope and resilience in their three children, emphasising the importance of faith and community support during Ramadan.

During Ramadan, Ahmed and Fatima rely on the generosity of their neighbours and humanitarian organisations for assistance. Through food distribution programs and community initiatives, they receive essential supplies such as rice, lentils, dates, and cooking oil, allowing them to observe Ramadan traditions despite their difficult circumstances. Ahmed is among the 12.9 million people in Syria who are unable to afford food.

With significant organisations like the World Health Programme reducing food funding to Syria, it's crucial this Ramadan, more than ever, to bridge the gap and ensure that food parcels reach families in need. Without sustenance this month, many families will endure profound suffering.

By donating to our cause, you can help provide essential food packages, hygiene kits, medical supplies, and other forms of assistance to vulnerable families across Syria. Your contribution will not only help alleviate their suffering but also demonstrate the spirit of compassion and solidarity that defines Ramadan.


Through our shelter projects, we're working to provide both short-term and long-term housing solutions for some of the most vulnerable families, especially in the most challenging-to-reach areas of Syria and its neighbouring countries. With your invaluable support, we are actively working towards the creation of new villages within Syria, ensuring that displaced families can regain a sense of dignity and security in their lives.



Currently, we operate 155 schools in Northern Syria, making us the largest non-governmental education provider in the country. Our commitment extends beyond the present generation; we aspire to open doors of opportunity for Syrian children today and for generations to come.

In September 2023, we achieved a significant milestone by successfully building a new secondary school in an area of Northwestern Syria where many children, including 11-year-old Zayna, previously lacked access to secondary education.




On this month, let us unite to support the families in Syria, who have endured immense trauma and hardship this Ramadan. We have been blessed with the ability to make a positive impact in the lives of those in need, and it is our responsibility to use this blessing to help those who are struggling. Let us not waste this opportunity; instead, let us unite and share the blessings of Ramadan with those who need it the most. 

Together, we can make a difference and bring hope to those facing hardships.

Let us come together to share the blessings of Ramadan and offer our support to those in need. Help us reach our target and make a difference in the world.

“The Messenger of Allah (SAW) prescribed the Zakat al-Fitr as a purification of the fasting person from empty and obscene talk and as food for the poor. If anyone pays it before the prayer (of Eid), it will be accepted as Zakat. If anyone pays it after the prayer, that will be a Sadaqah like other Sadaqahs”. [Abu Dawud]

Zakat al-fitr (also known as Fitrana) is a form of charity that must be paid at the end of Ramadan before the end of Eid prayers. This is a charitable donation of food that is due on every member of a household, including children and the elderly. We recommend £5 per person.


By contributing to our food projects, you're making a direct impact. Your support translates into meals for those facing hunger, offering real assistance where it's needed most. Together, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of those struggling to put food on the table.



In direct response to the pressing healthcare challenges at hand, we've set up an expansive medical aid program that stands as one of our most significant initiatives. This program involves overseeing a network of 24 hospitals and healthcare centres strategically positioned throughout northern Syria.



At Syria Relief, we're actively involved in projects that empower local communities. These include sustainable well construction, water trucking services in displacement camps, and water station establishments. Currently, we're providing essential materials to support water stations in Northwest Syria, with a goal to serve around 40,000 families, equivalent to approximately 240,000 individuals, daily for six months.
