Violence in Syria

Almost 1 million innocent people have fled violence in Idlib since December. Airstrikes and ground attacks have forced them to leave everything behind.

We’re working with our partner ReliefAid to help families affected, but we need your support to do more.

Emergency Disaster Relief


Right now, more than 88 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.

We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

Our impact

Airstrikes in Idlib


Politics has failed the people of Syria. It has left them trapped and repeatedly uprooted by violence, targeted where they should feel safe.

Since December, almost 1 million innocent people have fled the violence in Idlib province. Airstrikes and ground attacks have hounded them into smaller and smaller areas. Even hospitals and displacement camps have been hit.

ShelterBox is already working with ReliefAid to help thousands of families in Idlib province this winter. But we need your support to do more.

RECOVERY STARTS WITH SHELTER


Our vision is to see a world where no family is without shelter after disaster.

Our teams work with disaster-hit families around the world, offering emergency shelter and other essential items to support them in rebuilding their lives.

Every disaster is different and so is every community, so we spend time with those affected to make sure we can offer the right support at the right time to help them recover.

Our response teams can travel by boat, helicopter or tuk-tuk to get to the families who need your support – whatever it takes to get to the people who have lost their homes to disaster.
