THE STORY:

Refugees endure worsening conditions as the conflict in Syrian heads towards the 6th year.

As the Syrian conflict continues, millions of refugees are caught in alarmingly deteriorating conditions, facing an even bleaker future.

With no solution to the conflict in sight, most of the 4 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt see no prospect of returning home in the near future, and have little opportunity to restart their lives in exile.

Inside Syria, the situation is deteriorating rapidly. There’s great concern about the extremely dire humanitarian situation in Madaya and other besieged areas, and distressing reports of people at risk of starving to death. UNHCR estimates that there may be up to 400,000 vulnerable people including children and the elderly who need help.

What is UNHCR doing to help

UNHCR provides basic and necessary humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees and helps the most vulnerable refugees with urgently needed relief - cash for medicine and food, stoves and fuel for heating, insulation for tents, thermal blankets and winter clothing.

UNHCR is delivering life-saving assistance on the ground to Madaya, including water, food, medicine, blankets and warm clothes, household items, diapers and hygiene supplies, and jerry cans.

By helping refugees in the surrounding region, UNHCR hopes to reduce the number of desperate Syrians resorting to smugglers and falling prey to traffickers to reach safety elsewhere.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors since January alone, 1.8 million refugees received food aid, 500,000 children were enrolled in school, and shelter in camps was provided for more than 460,000 refugees.

You can help make a difference.
