Syria Crisis Appeal

More than 3 million people have become refugees as a result of the civil war in Syria.

Since the start of the conflict some three and a half years ago, more than 190,000 people have been killed, while another 6.5 million people have been displaced inside the country.

The spotlight may have shifted, but the number of vulnerable people continues to increase as the humanitarian crisis deepens. We are working through our partners in Lebanon and Iraq to respond to the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis.

We are also supporting our ACT Alliance sister agency, International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC), to provide vital assistance to people in desperate need inside Syria itself.

Thanks to your generosity, our Syria Crisis Appeal has to date raised more than £2 million and has enabled our partners to provide support to communities in desperate need.

How we're responding

Our partners have provided humanitarian essentials such as food, fuel for cooking, hygiene and sanitation kits, water containers and infant kits, as well as psychological support for those who are suffering as a result of the conflict.

Now responding to the longer term needs of refugees, our partners are supporting communities to access livelihoods opportunities, and to work with especially vulnerable groups such as women and people with disabilities.

Comment by Christian Aid US

28 January 2014 - Christian Aid disassociates itself entirely from comments made by an American organisation of the same name that they are proselytizing among Syrian refugees in Jordan.

We regard linking the providing of basic supplies with evangelism as against all the principles of humanitarian aid provision.

Any Christian group using the unfolding tragedy in Syria as an opportunity to proselytize is endangering the lives of other Christian organisations working in the region who, like us, provide aid where it is needed, to people of all faiths, and none.
