Help for Syrians on the run from war

The Big Picture

Goal: $20,000
  $900 raised
Imagine fleeing your home with only the clothes on your back, fearing for your life as you journey to the border, and arrive in a foreign country. You have no idea where you will live or what you will eat.

That's the reality for millions of Syrians, half of them under 18, who are fleeing the violent conflict in their country. They need help to get through the worst humanitarian crisis of our time.

Mercy Corps has been on the ground working since August 2012 and has the largest presence inside Syria, next to only the United Nations. Their staff put their lives in danger every day to deliver lifesaving food and supplies, improving access to clean water, providing activities and counseling to help children feel safe again, and helping refugees and host communities learn how to work together. And they'll be there until families can safely return home.

Every dollar we contribute makes a powerful difference in the lives of these courageous children and families. Now, and for the future.
