Syria crisis appeal

Oxfam has reached over one million people already with desperately needed food, water and shelter. But the scale of this emergency is huge and we still urgently need your help to continue supporting families forced from their homes by conflict.

The UN has announced that the number of registered Syrian refugees has passed 4 million.

The situation

More than 200,000 people have lost their lives as a result of the Syrian conflict. Over 11 million people have fled their homes and over 4m are living in neighbouring countries including Lebanon and Jordan. In Syria alone more than 12 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance such as water, food, and shelter. Oxfam is providing aid and long-term support to hundreds of thousands of people affected by the crisis.

The crisis reached its fourth anniversary in March 2015, and more than half the Syrian population is in need of humanitarian assistance.

Syria remains an Oxfam priority. We estimate that we have reached over a million people already, whether inside Syria or in Lebanon and Jordan.
