World Renew has been working in Syria since 2012.
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
Emergency food assistance continues for internally displaced families within Syria as well as vouchers to Syrian refugees who have fled to Lebanon. In addition to providing this essential food, World Renew has an initiative to provide project staff with Personal Protective Equipment to stop the transmission of COVID-19 to community members. In response to the virus and as an effort to protect refugees, the food assistance program has added soap to our deliveries as well as information regarding strategies to limit the spread of COVID-19 among Syrian refugee populations.
