As a result of the ongoing conflict and deteriorating living conditions, the situation in Syria has intensified and reached crisis point. Thousands of people have taken shelter in neighbouring countries.
In the past two weeks alone, 4,000 Syrian refugees have fled their homes and arrived in the Wadi Khaled Valley in Lebanon. The number is increasing day by day. Muslim Aid is on the ground and has distributed essential food and non-food items, including blankets and sanitary items to hundreds of families.
Muslim Aid has launched an urgent appeal to provide emergency relief to the refugees. We desperately need your help for food supplies, medicine and heating equipment.
The Charity has already started its humanitarian intervention by distributing essential food and non-food items, including blankets and sanitary items to 800 families in Lebanon. Muslim Aid is also closely monitoring developments and assessing the situation of refugees in Jordan.
A spokesperson for the Charity said: “As a humanitarian NGO, it is incumbent upon Muslim Aid to help the Syrian refugees during this challenging time. We are also coordinating with other relief agencies to provide assistance to the displaced people. To support this emergency programme, we have launched an urgent appeal to raise funds for the Syrian refugees. Muslim Aid is hopeful that the public response to our appeal will be robust and allow us to continue to provide assistance at present, as well as later, if the situation deteriorates further.”
