UPDATE - Update 18 Feb 2023

Medair: Working around the clock in Syria to save lives

In a crowded collective shelter in Aleppo, Syria that was once a basketball stadium, two young sisters – only one of whom has shoes – play a game involving a coffee cup, oblivious to the noise of other displaced families around them. 

In a park packed with families seeking safety, a man drives up and distributes food before quietly driving away again. 

They are small, bright sparks of hope in a terrible, heart-breaking, and overwhelming situation. 

Where the need is the greatest

As aid slowly trickles into Syria due to its long-running conflict, we are grateful for our teams who have been working in Aleppo and Hama governorates, two of the most heavily impacted areas of Syria, since 2016. They are working relentlessly to respond to the overwhelming needs following this disaster. 

              We have reopened our three clinics in Aleppo and will offer 24/7 treatment to those injured in the          earthquakes, as well as mental health support to those reeling from the shock. 


               We continue to distribute essential items such as blankets, diapers, and hygiene kits.

               Despite the difficulty in getting items into the country, we are providing tents to the many people who are afraid to seek shelter inside.
