The humanitarian situation in Syria, and of Syrian refugees, is among the most alarming in the world:
- More than half the country has been displaced
- 6.1 million refugees have left the country (UNHCR, March 2018)
- Nearly 2.4 million children are refugees outside the country (UNICEF)
- 45% of school-age children were no longer in school last year (UNDP)
- Experts worry about the long-term psychological effects on survivors
IRUSA is partnering now to provide emergency support such as medical aid, food supplies, winter aid, and water & sanitation development tp Syria refugees across the Middle East. Islamic Relief USA community has been able to serve more than 9.3 million Syrians in need, in Syria and in neighboring countries—especially during the challenges of winter, when we use the aid you give to distribute survival items like food, medical aid, water, blankets, mattresses, plastic sheeting, plastic mats, shoes, jackets, hats, sweatshirts, gloves, and waterproof coats.
