Help IRC rescue lives in Syria

THE STORY:

The Syrian refugee crisis is a humanitarian crisis that requires immediate attention. The war that began in 2011 has displaced 12.3 million people. However, 13.3 million people including children, are in dire need of aid. 

The International Rescue Committee: "first began assisting Syrians in 2012, providing emergency relief and humanitarian aid to those uprooted by war. In 2016, over 1,000 IRC workers helped more than 1 million Syrians inside their country. This included 971,000 people treated in around 50 IRC supported clinics and mobile health teams, helping 24,000 women and girls–many survivors of assault and abuse–find safety and support, and providing an education and support to over 10,000 children and parents. The IRC also supported 13,500 Syrians to get vital documents to move more freely and access services, as well as provided thousands of Syrians with job training and cash or vouchers to help them buy food and other essential items for their families."   

The International Rescue Committeeʻs programs are led by cross-border teams in Iraq, Turkey and Jordan—each providing support that is tailored to the communities they serve.

As violence, displacement, and poverty wrack Syria, the International Rescue Committee is escalating our response by: 

•partnering with local and diaspora groups to ensure the uninterrupted flow of medicines, supplies, and equipment;

•providing emergency cash assistance to help displaced families meet their immediate needs;

•operating clinics and mobile teams to provide lifesaving trauma services, primary and reproductive care, dialysis and essential drugs; 

•integrating mental health services into our primary care work;

•running classes, counseling and protection services for thousands of children in camps and communities;

•creating safe spaces for women and girls that offer services for survivors of violence, as well as counseling and skills training;

Now is the time.  Please help.

It is not men who destroy the helpless for power or money. It is the men who do not feel it in their hearts to give the blessings of love and the shelter of money to those who are cold in need. I would rather die in cold hunger than have a frozen heart. 3 months ago
