The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR)

“Over 4 million people have fled Syria since 2011, seeking safety in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and beyond. Millions more are displaced inside Syria and, as war continues, hope is fading fast. UNHCR works hard to help, leading a coordinated effort across the region. Together with our partners, NGOs and host governments, we offer a lifeline to those in need.”

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) 

“MSF continues to operate medical facilities inside Syria, as well as directly supporting more than 150 medical structures throughout the country. Throughout 2015, activities in neighboring countries have been scaled up and additional projects have been opened, but the needs remain enormous.”

International Rescue Committee 

“Across Syria, the International Rescue Committee provides lifesaving support to over 1.4 million people—half of them children—who are struggling to survive a brutal war.”

Islamic Relief USA 

“Islamic Relief staff is helping Syrian refugees and others across Europe, in places like Italy, Germany, Greece, Turkey and elsewhere, with aid like food, water, hygiene kits, translations services, map distributions and more.”
