Islamic Relief Canada's Syria Emergency Appeal
12 years of devastation in Syria
The crisis in Syria has reached a grim milestone as we mark over 12 years of crisis – a decade of devastation and dire suffering.
For the past 12 years, the brutal conflict in Syria has left 6.7 million people displaced, 470,000 dead, and 5.6 million as refugees. The recent earthquakes have only exacerbated the destruction caused by the civil war. Syrians are living in constant fear, hunger and suffering. They must not be forgotten.
Today, more than 14 million people within Syria are in need of humanitarian aid. Many of them are orphans, widows and elderly who cannot wait any longer.
The death toll from the earthquake in the north western regions of Syria has risen to over 6,000, while thousands more remain injured or missing under the rubble.
In a country rife with 12 years of civil war, poor infrastructure and long lasting poverty, the aftermath of the Syria earthquake is absolutely devastating. 1,460 buildings have been destroyed and thousands more impacted since the earthquake struck on Monday, February 6.
What is Islamic Relief already doing to help in Syria?
Islamic Relief has been on the ground for over 12 years in Syria, with a presence in Aleppo and Idlib. As the pandemic and civil war forced organizations to pull back their operations, Islamic Relief is able to continue its operations and stand by the people of Syria.
Our immediate emergency response is just the beginning. Beyond urgent food, medical, water and shelter support, there’s still so much to be done. Islamic Relief is committed to restoring dignity and rebuilding lives for the people of Turkiye and Syria, long after the news cycle dies down.
As one of the largest aid organizations still operating in northern Syria, the generosity of our supporters means Islamic Relief remains as a lifeline for many. Through our shared global efforts in the past year, Islamic Relief has provided food to over 770,000 displaced people, vital healthcare support to 1.2 million people and medical necessities to 84 health facilities.
And yet, there is still so much more that needs to be done.
Emergency shelter: Help us to continue providing emergency shelter to those struggling to survive without protection or a tent to call home.
Food: Help us to continue providing urgent food support. We are the World Food Programme’s main partner distributing fresh bread and ready-made meals in Syria.
Medical care: Help us to continue bringing vital medical care to communities without access to hospitals. Our mobile emergency unit is providing daily critical care where many hospitals have been suspended following attacks.
Islamic Relief teams are on the ground right now responding to the disaster in Jindires, Sharan, Atareb, Daret Azza, Salqin, Dana, Maaret Tamsrin, Qourqeena, Harem, Sarmada, Bdama, Darkoush, Ariha, Jisr Alshughour, Janudiyeh, Ehsem, Armanaz and Afrin of the Idlib and Aleppo regions of north western Syria.

How you can help Syrian refugees
Your donations for Syrian refugees helps meet their food, water, sanitation, hygiene, medicine and psychosocial needs through our emergency and development projects.
As a leading Syrian refugee charity, we are providing medical services for trauma patients, awareness sessions on maternal health and nutrition to new mothers, as well as distributing baby milk and formula.
To improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene for host and internally displaced communities in Northwest Syria, we are rehabilitating water supply systems, establishing sewage networks and solar powered water systems, and distributing hygiene kits.
In response to the Syria earthquake, our team is focusing on delivering emergency food aid, water, shelter and warmth supplies, and medical care to those impacted.
During the winter months, your donations help to procure and deliver warm blankets, heating kits and other essentials that keep Syrian refugees warm. Seasonal Qurbani meat packages and Ramadan food packages act as a lifeline to over 12,000 Syrians.
