Syria’s largest city is home to over 2 million people with an estimated 400,000 caught up in the danger areas. Over 250 people, including many women and children, have been killed in the last 2 weeks alone, taking the total killed in the Syrian conflict since 2011, to over 270,000.
In the last few days, air strikes have maimed and murdered hundreds of innocent civilians, placing the city into a state of emergency. For the first time in Aleppo’s history, Friday prayers have been cancelled for the safety of the people. Hospitals, schools and homes lie in ruins.
In the face of such violence and cruelty, the people of Aleppo need not only emergency aid but also to know that we will never give up on them. We need you to show them that our efforts for peace, compassion and humanity will endure and never falter.
Muslim Aid is on the ground in Syria delivering food packs and emergency aid to people who are victims of air strikes, rocket and horrific barrel bombs. With devastating injuries, demolished homes, a severe lack of food and sanitation; their situation is dire and without help, will only get worse.
