The Syrian crisis is dramatically deteriorating. Hundreds of thousands of child refugees are enduring harsh winter conditions in makeshift camps that do not offer protection from the bitter cold. Children and their families are in urgent need of food, water and blankets. Having lost everything they know and owned, they are left vulnerable to disease and malnutrition.
What we are doing
Our recent work in Syria includes ensuring that displaced families have access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene, overseeing the distribution of emergency hygiene kits, and building latrines to support families living in camps. With the heightened insecurity and the exodus of thousands of Syrian refugees into neighbouring countries, the growing destruction poses the severest of risks for all involved. We remain committed to helping displaced families, both within Syria and in the neighbouring countries where so many Syrians have fled.
