"Hell on earth." That's how the UN Secretary-General described the situation in Syria this week. Entire neighborhoods reduced to rubble. Families trapped and hoping to survive another day.
As the conflict in Syria drags on with recent appalling violence in Eastern Ghouta, families displaced by the war are at even greater risk. Despite the immense scale of the crisis, it risks becoming another forgotten emergency.
Brutal and unrelenting bombing continues and the Syrian people are in desperate need.
The UN Refugee Agency is on the ground coordinating a massive response throughout the region. With help from people like you, UNHCR is leading efforts to protect and shelter refugees — working across conflict lines to provide critical aid under extremely dangerous circumstances.
We don’t have any time to waste.
