Entire cities have been reduced to rubble in conflict-torn Syria. Syrians now make up the world’s largest population of refugees. More than 6.6 million people have been internally displaced, with a further 4.4 million taking shelter in neighboring countries and over a million seeking refuge in Europe. It is the largest movement of people since the Second World War and a crisis of such magnitude that urgent help is required right now to stop terrible suffering and further deaths. A donation to Ummah Relief International will help us deliver fresh Qurbani meat to the refugees during Eid-al-Adha.
Syrians Risk Their Lives to Find Sanctuary
The civil war in Syria has been described as the worst of its kind in history. At least half of Syria’s pre-war population has fled. Those who have survived bombings have been forced to leave the country they love; their homes in ruins and their dreams shattered. One in five people in Lebanon is a Syrian refugee. In Jordan the figure is purported to be one in 13. More than 245,500 Syrians have fled to Iraq, and another 125,000 are thought to have entered Egypt. Of those still in Syria, 13.5 million are in need of humanitarian assistance.
As hundreds of thousands languish in refugee camps, more than a million have risked their lives to reach Europe. They have given up everything they hold dear to find sanctuary and the possibility of a more peaceful future. Of those, many will have attempted the dangerous journey from Turkey to Greece. At the mercy of human traffickers, they are handing over their life savings to be placed in overcrowded, unsafe inflatable boats, often without life jackets, and left unsupervised to cross the Mediterranean Sea. Not all of them survive the crossing. The sight of children being pulled lifeless from the ocean has not been enough to soften the hearts of all those who could help. The need for humanitarian aid has never been greater.
Ummah Relief International Supporting Syrian Refugees
Because the need is so overwhelmingly great, Ummah Relief International is doing more than one thing to help relieve suffering. We are encouraging Qurbani Udhiya donations to help Syrian refugees and have put in place a Zabihi Program to offer further support. The distribution of food and essential supplies needs to be an on-going effort. It is estimated that billions of dollars are needed to help alleviate the suffering of Syrian refugees. You can help them today by making a donation. Syrian refugees have been scattered around the globe by a human tragedy they have no control over. They desperately need your support. Donate now.
Syrian Refugees Need Urgent Help
Food, clothing, shelter and medical aid is urgently required by those fleeing conflict in Syria. Wherever they are in the world, they need your support and prayers. After surviving the journey to safety, they still face an uncertain future. You can help them in their hour of great need by supporting one or more of our initiatives.
