Aid Shipment to Syria Appeal
Containers to Syria Shipment Appeal
This Appeal Has Been Successfully Concluded: Thanks to all who participated
Human Appeal Ireland are working in Syria and the surrounding region helping to provided for the innocent victims of the recent upsurge in violence in the country. Without your help we cannot reach the and give assistance to those who are in desperate need.
We have containers full of essential medical equipment as well as containers full of shoes and clothes ready to go to Syria via Turkey.
Each container costs €5,000 to ship, truck and distribute - none of these costs are administrative. So we need donations to cover these shipping and duties costs costs or the materials just won't get there.
Remember little things can make a big difference
These material save lives: we must get them to Syria, but we need your help. Support our Transport to Syria appeal by donating now.

Below are images from our recent Damascus Distribution. The costs of the distribution were also covered entirely through generous donations through our container appeal.There are 40,000 people in the Damascus region that are now receiving aid which was donated by individuals and communities throughout Ireland.
Witnessing the importance of the donations
The value of these donations is almost inestimable. Our staff and volunteers alike who have been on hand to distribute the donations, have seen just what the clothes and other supplies mean to the people who receive them.
I recall when visiting a camp in the province of Idlib, witnessing how important donations of clothes and other vital supplies were to those people. A small donation of clothes arrived and the women were distributing it gladly immediately, obviously heartened to have received what was desperately needed. There were no washing facilities there, and during the winter months flooding, snow, and freezing temperatures made it impossible to stay warm in the camps.
