Since the beginning of the crisis in 2011, hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost in Syria. More than half of the population have fled their homes.
More than 13 million people continue to find themselves in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. Homes and schools have been destroyed, neighbourhoods lack clean running water and sanitation, and people lack the means of making a living to feed their families.
The conflict continues to drive the largest refugee crisis in the world. In Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon, we are helping more than 1.5 million people with life-saving clean water, sanitation, and vital food aid, as well as helping refugees make a living and protecting them from violence.
Oxfam is on the ground in Syria providing clean water, cash and hygiene essentials to those who have fled their homes. We cannot continue to do this without the support of people like you.
Note: Should the funds raised exceed the amount required to meet the immediate and longer term needs of the people in the affected areas, Oxfam Australia will direct donations to our International Crisis Fund to enable us to rapidly address emergencies as they occur.
