Advocacy for Syria
What is Happening?
After more than a decade of war, Syria faces an acute-on-chronic crisis following the devastating February 2023 earthquakes. This has compounded protracted needs with new crises. Nearly half the country’s pre-war population are displaced. Syrian refugees face the threat of forcible return despite grave risks. Inside Syria, massive destruction is widespread, and a deteriorating economy has exacerbated the humanitarian crisis, pushing Syrians into poverty.
What Must Be Done?
Despite waning international interest, global efforts to resolve the conflict and to fund the humanitarian response remain imperative for Syria’s future. Syrian NGOs and communities on the front lines are critical partners for aid access and provision to Syrians across the country. Refugees International is advocating for these groups to be at the center of the humanitarian response.
