SYRIA EMERGENCY APPEAL
Up to date, millions of Syrians have escaped across borders seeking safety. Most seek refuge in Turkey and other neighbouring countries such as Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq.
Since December 2019, some 900,000 Syrians are on the run and they are now trapped in Idlib province, Aleppo. The United Nations (UN) reported that these Internally Displaced People (IDP) faced death due to exposure to the harsh winter conditions. Most of which are children and women.
According to Abu Anwar, an official and resident of the facility near the Syrian-Turkish border, “Mothers are burning plastic to keep their children warm.” Heart-breaking indeed.

THE BRICKSTONE SHELTER
What is the issue?
Despite the existing shelters, there is an increase in the number of refugees which has resulted in overcrowding and limited number of shelters. A critical need is shelter, compounded by the harsh winter conditions. School, mosques and even unfinished buildings are occupied leaving the remaining close to impossible in finding a shelter to survive.
How can you help?
Create an awareness and help us to fundraise for the shelter construction.
