Emergency aid for Syrian refugees (2015)

Project: emergency aid for Syrian refugees in their own country

Beneficiary:  Caritas 

Amount: 150.000 euro

Duration: September 2015 

After five years of war in the region, the humanitarian conditions of the Syrian people are worsening rapidly. More than 12 million people are in need of emergency assistance. 7.6 million are fleeing the violence in Syria and the neighboring countries.

Caritas International supports these refugees in their own region. Many flee to the coast of Syria. Numberless families arrive with little or no means and are living in poor the humanitarian conditions. There is a lack of drinking water, food, medical care and education for children.

With this aid Caritas provides emergency assistance to about 3,500 families - around 200 000 people - in the coastal region of Syria.
