The Latest News from Syria Relief
No one is less prepared for the coronavirus outbreak than a Syrian family sleeping in a tent tonight.
Thousands of Syrian families who have fled their homes and are now living in makeshift camps, in close proximity to many others, are extremely vulnerable to the current coronavirus outbreak. This war has taken everything from them but now they face a new threat: COVID-19.
Displaced and refugee families are living in dangerous conditions with no clean water, sanitation or hygiene equipment. With no cleaning facilities or clean water, parents are unable to protect their children from the virus. Many already have health conditions caused by their unsuitable shelter during winter or as a result of injuries sustained from airstrikes and conflict. With only 64% of hospitals operational in Syria and a lack of medical professionals, the virus outbreak will be catastrophic for displaced families.
Our team are on the ground providing access to clean water, distributing hygiene kits, running awareness training and supporting hospitals and healthcare centres across the region. But we need your help!
9 years of war has killed, injured and displaced millions of Syrian’s, COVID-19 will kill many more unless you donate now.
