Since the outbreak of conflict in 2011, the situation in Syria has steadily deteriorated

Over 14 million Syrians have left Syria since 2011

90 % of Syrians live below the poverty line.

3.1 million children are internally displaced.


The Prophet (saw) said, ’It (Sham or Greater Syria) is Allah’s best land, to which He sends His best servants. [Abu Dawud]

Syria remains the world’s largest refugee crisis. Over a decade of conflict has resulted in more than 14 million Syrians forced to flee their home country since 2011.

Unfortunately, women and children are disproportionately affected by the crisis, with the majority living below the poverty line. Approximately, seven million Syrians are internally displaced, out of which 3.1 million are children.

Our teams have been on the ground providing aid to affected Syrian families in refugee camps in Turkey, which remains the world’s largest refugee resettlement country.

The Syrians remain in dire need of assistance as they rebuild their lives amidst uncertainty and economic hardship. With 70 per cent of Syrian families not planning to return to Syria in the next five years, the need for humanitarian assistance is greater than ever.

Through your generosity, we stand strong in our commitment to help displaced Syrians. Your Sadaqah and Zakat can save lives.

Our Work In Refugee Camps

Since December 2019, around 600, 000 Syrian families have sought emergency shelter in refugee camps in northern Idlib, along the Turkish border. To get here, many have had to fight freezing conditions, traveling thousands of kilometres, mainly on foot and with no shoes.

They arrive to makeshift tents in already overcrowded camps, where a million displaced Syrians are already living. There is not enough food to go around, the water is not safe to drink, and basic medication is scarce.

Ahmed lives in a camp in western Idlib with his wife and five children, the youngest who is just nine months old. After witnessing unimaginable horrors, the family fled their home and Ahmed has since been desperately trying to find work to feed his family.

‘I couldn’t give him food or medicine for months. Day by day, he was dying slowly, right in front of my eyes’, Ahmed said. ‘Then, someone told us about a medical centre at a different camp that could make him better. I moved my whole family to the new camp so that we could visit Leen Clinic immediately. They gave Adel the medication and food he needed to get better’.

The doctors at the clinic were able to save Adel’s life through intense nutritional treatment. Adel is now healthier and stronger, but the doctors continue to monitor his condition so that he does not deteriorate again.

None of this could have happened without your support.
