UNHCR, the U. N. refugee agency, has registered more than 4.5 million refugees from Syria in the neighbouring countries Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey, and Egypt. In addition, there are more than seven million people internally displaced within the borders of this war-torn country. The majority of those people is financially destitute and in urgent need of help. However, due to a lack of shelters, medical care and water, the hosting communities are overwhelmed by the ongoing mass influx of refugees. UNHCR provides refugees with humanitarian aid including key items such as shelter, blankets, mattresses, hygiene packages, water jugs and kitchen sets. Moreover, the people in need are supported with medical assistance as well as legal and other counselling. In particular to take care of children, single women and the elderly. An increase of the overall number of refugees is to be expected in the months ahead. This is why we urgently need your help. Please support UNHCR in providing emergency assistance to those who need it the most – the innocent victims of this atrocious conflict. Thank you.
