Islamic Relief of Australia on Worldwide Humanitarian Mission

Australia based Islamic Relief has been providing humanitarian aid to vulnerable families in Syria since the onset of the crisis in 2011. Islamic Relief programs now assist refugees in Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan as well as those suffering inside Syria itself. As Syria enters a fifth year of conflict, the organization is determined to do even more than ever before to provide relief and end the suffering. Syria is at the centre of one of the world’s most critical humanitarian emergencies. The country is besieged by internal conflict that has uprooted millions of families. On average, one family flees Syria for safety, every minute. Four years on from the beginning of the conflict, Islamic Relief has implemented more than 223 projects to support vulnerable Syrians in Syria, and neighbouring Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan. These projects have varied from providing food aid, non-food items, education support, shelter assistance, psychosocial support, Water and Sanitation Health projects, and medical assistance. Islamic Relief has reached 7,126,795 people in Syria and neighbouring countries since 2012 through its humanitarian and urgent assistance in various sectors. In 2014 alone, more than 500,000 Syrians benefited from Islamic Relief’s Winter programmes, with over 11,000 Syrians in Lebanon receiving items such as blankets, clothes, vouchers, gas heaters, gas cylinders and mattresses. Inside Syria, over 44,000 blankets were distributed, as well as thousands of mattresses and sheets. We intend to carry on our work inside Syria in 2015, so please donate today to make this vital work, possible.   Australia Based Islamic Relief’s £128 million Syria Programme Islamic Relief is distributing food and medicines deep inside Syria, and helping hundreds of thousands of refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.
