More than 12 million innocent people are in need of humanitarian assistance — and an entire generation of children is at risk.
Syria is in ruins and its people are on the run from a nightmare that seems to have no end. Millions are trapped inside Syria in dire condition. Millions of others have overwhelmed neighboring countries —and their numbers and needs grow daily. The worst part? 5.6 million are children.
Thanks to supporters, UNHCR is still on the ground coordinating a massive refugee response throughout the region and leading efforts to protect and provide shelter for those displaced inside Syria – working across conflict lines to provide critical aid under extremely dangerous circumstances.
