Syria Relief was established in 2011 in response to the beginning of the Syrian crisis. Overwhelmed by the rapidly increasing disaster unfolding in Syria, a group of friends of Syrian heritage came together in order to provide emergency humanitarian aid, for what was initially assumed would be a short-term outreach.
Syria Relief had to adapt and swiftly expand to create a multitude of programmes to cater to the crucial needs within Syria, such as, education centres and food aid.
We are now at the forefront of non-profit support on the ground in Syria, covering unique and critical areas, from specialist psychiatric treatment for children suffering from PTSD to prosthetic limb clinics.
Syria Relief has a solid network of committed management and logistics staff on the ground inside Syria – currently numbering at around 1,700. These connections mean we can deliver vital and efficient support to hard-to-reach rural and besieged areas.
Due to working in a war zone, we are constantly facing new challenges, having to adapt and grow daily to achieve our goals. Despite these hurdles, with the support of our donors, fundraisers and volunteers, we are proud to have succeeded to aid millions of Syrian civilians.
