More than 12 million Syrians have been forced to leave everything they know behind in search of safety – whether within Syria, or to neighboring nations. Since the war began, an estimated 400,000 people have been killed. The situation in Syria today has improved very little. Food production has hit a record low, and prices have skyrocketed. After exhausting their life savings, many families no longer have the means to put enough food on the table.
COUNTRY COVID UPDATE
World Renew has responded to the needs of families in Syria since the civil war first began over ten years ago. Now, COVID-19 is pushing the Syrian people to the brink of starvation with 60 percent of the population lacking access to sufficient food. In the last year, World Renew has continued its emergency food deliveries, adding soap as well as information regarding strategies to limit the spread of COVID-19, reaching 12,500 participants among displaced Syrians.
COVID-19 has made the people of Syria all the more vulnerable. World Renew’s ongoing work is critical, not only for their flourishing, but for their very survival. Your gifts to Syria go straight towards allowing World Renew to continue and, hopefully, scale up our programming in response. We can’t meet these needs without you.
