Syria Emergency Appeal

Human Appeal Ireland Syria Crisis Please Donate to Our Appeals


There are now as many as 4.8 million Syrian refugees having fled their home country. Most are living in the neighbouring countries. There is also an estimated 6.6 million internally displaced people (IDP’s) and 12 million in need of humanitarian aid. All of these are in dire need of safety, food and proper shelter.

With the help of our donors, we’ve been able to deliver over many thousands of tonnes of flour into Syria, and over 200,000 food parcels. We’ve build safe haven communities that house over 700 people.

Our medical programme delivers not only vital medical equipment such as CT scanners and ICUs, emergency hygiene and medical packs, we also support hospitals including a fully functional paediatric and women’s health hospital caring for the needs of thousands of patients.

We support schools both inside and outside Syria and provide over 1,000 orphan sponsorships.

These amazing projects are run by our Syrian staff who are supported by our expert international team of logisticians and programme managers as well as countless volunteers in and around Syria.

This crisis is a long way from being over however, and so we are having to plan for the longer term in our responses.

 We would ask you to please help us to continue our work by supporting one of our projects.
