About this project

The crisis in Syria has been continuously deteriorating over the years, and still there is no end in sight. Since the outbreak of the conflict, more than half of the Syrian population has been displaced, many of them multiple times. People have lost their belongings and are depending on humanitarian assistance.  A mammoth task – also for the German Red Cross.

What a bitter result: In March 2019, eight years after the outbreak of the violent conflict in Syria, more than 13 million people have become refugees. About 6.6 million of those are now IDPs – Internally Displaced People – people who are refugees within their own country's borders. 

 Everything is needed that contributes towards meeting the basic survival needs of the population: food, shelter, water, sanitation and basic hygiene measures. The health care system has also collapsed to a large extent, medical supplies are scarce and many hospitals have been destroyed. Furthermore, the logistical infrastructure to transport goods and medication to the people in need is lacking. Around 9 million people have no secured access to staple foods. In addition a significant shortage of baby milk and baby food is causing a considerable rise in malnutrition amongst babies and infants.
