Syria Appeal Update: 7th June 2012

Campaigns

As the conflict has worsened in Syria, the number of families seeking refuge in Lebanon has also increased, especially in the Northern and Eastern regions. Accordingly, Muslim Aid has increased its food and non food items distribution and, at the same time, made provisions for appropriate shelter for the Syrian families, working together with the Wadi Khalid’s volunteer council. A total of 2100 families have been supported by Muslim Aid in Lebanon so far.

In Jordan, two medical clinics launched by Muslim Aid are currently running in Al-Ramtha and Al-Mafraq, along the border for treating the sick and wounded refugees. Over 200 patients are seen everyday and those needing more specialised care are referred to a newly established regional hospital. Syrian refugees receive free treatment and medication at these clinics. Further work on providing food and non food items to Syrian families in Jordan is underway.

Within the UK, Muslim Aid has raised over £400,000 for the Syria Appeal so far, through text campaigns, live television appeals and mosque collections etc. To date, around £150,000 of the funds have been spent for the Syrian refugees. Muslim Aid also attended two international humanitarian meetings on Syria organised by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) in Geneva recently.

The ongoing conflict in Syria has left over 200,000 Syrians displaced. Muslim Aid’s Syria Appeal has raised over £240,000 so far. Muslim Aid's teams are on the ground in Lebanon and Jordan offering aid and support to the men, women and children fleeing their country for the security and safety of their lives.
