Syria crisis



The crisis in Syria has reached its fourth year and the humanitarian needs are greater than ever. Most of the population has been affected by the violence and it has taken a tremendous toll on families who have been forced to move, often multiple times. Millions of people are displaced both inside Syria and in the neighboring countries.

 


 

The Syrian Arab Red Crescent has recently relaunched its website with news (in English and Arabic) about the response to the ongoing crisis. See more at www.sarc.sy.

Response

The Syrian Arab Red Crescent together with the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and partners have greatly expanded their response, now reaching around 4 million people every month. In Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Turkey, Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers are helping support thousands of people. However, much more needs to be done.

Impact

Since the crisis began 40 Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers have been killed, and 7 volunteers from the Palestinian Red Crescent. Every day our volunteers risk their lives to help others. They should be respected and protected as they carry out their humanitarian work.
