Syria

Four Years Of Conflict

The political and civil unrest in Syria, which entered its fifth year in March 2015, shows no sign of abating. It has resulted in approximately 200,000 deaths and more than 3.75 million registered refugees in neighboring countries, making it the largest refugee displacement crisis since WWII.

The fighting in Syria has made it extremely difficult for humanitarian agencies to gain access to vulnerable communities. As refugee populations are increasingly stressing already fragile systems in host countries, the humanitarian crisis has developed into a large-scale social and economic emergency affecting the entire region.

Since the beginning of the conflict in 2011, International Medical Corps has been addressing the critical needs of those affected in Syria as well as well as the neighboring countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. We are currently providing primary health care, nutrition and food security, mental health care and psychosocial support, water, hygiene, and sanitation services, protection services, as well as distributing critical supplies including winter clothing, shoes, jackets, blankets, and hygiene kits to those in need. We are also working to train local First Responders to multiply the impact of our work.
