The conflicts in the Middle East, and especially the war in Syria, have been driving people out of their homes for many years. In fear of their lives and those of their families, they must leave everything behind.
Most of the refugees are stranded in the countries neighbouring Syria, such as Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Iraq, which itself is the scene of conflict, is also sheltering a quarter of a million refugees.
Whether they are fleeing, travelling along migration routes or stranded in a host country, these refugees rely on humanitarian aid to survive.
Your donation makes a difference. Thanks to your support, we can provide refugees with emergency relief and ensure their survival.
Here, we join forces with our partner NGOs to support long-term projects. In addition to providing emergency relief such as the distribution of food or medical treatment for the sick and injured, we ensure that children are able to go to school, we improve living conditions, and provide cash assistance.
Cash assistance means that the refugees are given money so that they can decide for themselves, with dignity, what they most urgently need. Most use it to pay the rent, or buy food or medicines.
