Ordinary men, women and children continue to be caught up in the violence in Syria with limited ability to flee to safer areas.
People who have left their homes are forced to take shelter in schools, public buildings, unfurnished private accommodation and temporary camps in harsh winter weather conditions. In response, communities in Panama sent nine containers of winter clothes to support displaced families in northern Syria.
Islamic Relief provided health protection services for children living in camps and focused healthcare projects on crisis areas such as Aleppo, Idlib, Homs and Latakia.
The project helped more than 16,000 families (around 80,000 individuals).
