Since March 2011 and the start of the civil war in Syria, more than 6.5 million people have been forced to flee their hometowns within the country. The armed violence has already caused more than 250,000 deaths and this figure continues to rise. There are more than 13.5 million people in need of assistance (source: OCHA)

Syrian civilians live with the threat of armed violence. Every day, Humanity & Inclusion provides care for new victims with gunshot injuries or wounded in explosions. The organisation provides assistance to amputees and all those whose physical injuries are likely to lead to a permanent disability.

Neighbouring countries have taken in nearly 5 million refugees. Humanity & Inclusion is working alongside them in Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon. A total of 500 professionals working for the organisation provide care for the injured and for people with disabilities. They specifically provide support, both material and financial, for the most vulnerable refugees who have no, or very little, access to humanitarian aid.

At the end of 2016, more than 800,000 people have already benefitted from HI's interventions within the context of the Syrian crisis.

Syria map

The civilian population of Syria has been hit by the full force of fighting between parties who do not respect international humanitarian law. 

Born out of an anti-government protest movement that was strongly repressed in March 2011 by the Syrian armed forces, the armed conflict gradually transformed into a civil war. The confrontations, bombings, and massacres which are tearing Syria apart have generated an unprecedented humanitarian crisis.

Several million people are trapped in the combat zones. The civilian population, caught in the crossfire or sometimes even directly targeted by the warring factions, is paying very heavy price for what has become an interminable war in which human rights are violated on a daily basis.  Often going without food and water, they have no access to health care and no protection from the violence. Half of this population is made up of children threatened by hunger and disease, particularly in the winter months. If they do not receive treatment, the injured risk developing permanent disabilities. They need immediate access to the care and aid they currently go without.
