UPDATE: IDLIB IN CRISIS
Idlib is the final opposition held territory of Syria and home to more than 3 million people, more than half of whom are internally displaced persons who have fled from other parts of the country.
Hundreds of thousands of civilians will be caught in the crossfire and airstrikes of the looming offensive on idlib. Estimates indicate as many as 700,000 people could rapidly be pushed north to the Turkish border with the intensification of conflict in the area.
If and when the attacks starts many could be trapped at the borders, without food, water, shelter and other basic needs, leaving them exposed to dire humanitarian consequences.
Please donate today to ensure we can reach those affected with essential emergency assistance.
Note: All funds will be allocated through to the Syrian Refugee Emergency Appeal Campaign. If the war in Idlib does not take place, the funds will be used to support refugees entering Turkey.
Entering the seventh year of the crisis, the scale, severity, and complexity of needs across Syria remain overwhelming.
Some 13.1 million people in Syria require humanitarian assistance. Of these, 5.6 million people are in acute need due to a convergence of vulnerabilities resulting from displacement, exposure to hostilities, and limited access to basic goods and services.
Conflict continues to be the principal driver of humanitarian needs, with the civilian population in many parts of the country exposed to significant protection risks which threaten life, dignity and wellbeing on a daily basis.
