THE WAR IN SYRIA HAS ALREADY CLAIMED TOO MANY CHILDREN'S LIVES.

More than eleven years of destructive conflict in Syria has hit those who are least responsible the hardest – the nation’s children. Help protect children living through conflict.

The conflict in Syria has devastated the lives of a generation of young people. Half of Syria’s children have grown up knowing nothing but conflict and displacement, facing fear and uncertainty. 

5 million children are in need of humanitarian assistance amid ongoing violence and displacement. 

Now, in 2022, children in Syria face the triple threat of conflict, COVID-19 and the climate crisis. Many have missed years of education. An estimated 2.4 million children are out of school and another 1.6 million children are at risk of dropping out. Health infrastructure that would be vital in combating any public health emergency, such as COVID-19, has been decimated.

Children need support more than ever. Don’t let them suffer a lifetime of war. Donate to our Children’s Emergency Fund to help protect children living through conflict.

Our Response.

Save the Children has been working in Syria for 11 years. We have been there for children throughout the war and support Syrian refugees around the world.  

Save the Children has supported 4.2 million people including 2.6 million children. With your support, we can help millions of children in their darkest hour.  We are supporting clinics, mother-baby areas, seven vaccination centres, and a maternity hospital to make sure children and their mothers are receiving nutrition and health services they need..  

We support over 90 education facilities, including schools, learning tents and vocational training schools to make sure that all children at all levels can continue to learn. 

We provide critical psychosocial support for children impacted by the conflict and those who have been separated from their families. We work to reunite children with their loved ones. 

When the crisis escalates in the form of violence or displacement, Save the Children provides families with cash support, food and kits containing blankets, solar powered lamps and kitchen utensils.

Donate to our Children’s Emergency fund to help protect children in conflict.

AYSAR*'S STORY.

This is not just another news story. This is Aysar’s life. He is 9 years old and has only ever known conflict.

Aysar is the oldest of his three siblings. He and his family were forced to flee their home in North-West Syria because of conflict. Now, they live in a displacement camp and the family struggle to get food for their four children.  Aysar’s whole life has been shelling and displacement camps. He dreams of getting out of the camp, having a home and going to school.

Children like Aysar need help and Save the Children can make a real difference with your support. Donate now to our Children's Emergency Fund and provide critical support to children living in conflict.
