Since the crisis began in March 2011, the Syrian people have faced unthinkable levels of hardship and loss. Recurrent rounds of violence have inflicted intense suffering and forced people to flee repeatedly in search of safety. They have experienced deepening poverty and inability to access basic resources and services.

Since the crisis began, Islamic Relief has invested £350 million in delivering life-saving humanitarian programming. Last year alone, we were a lifeline for around 2.5 million* people.
