Families desperately need your help


Children in Syria and beyond are running for their lives. They’re running through dust and rubble, away from their burnt-out houses, away from fighter jets and bombs raining from the sky.

Right now, we’re helping these terrified children and their families. They’ve lost everything to the conflict in Syria – their homes, their possessions, their old lives.

Families urgently need warmth and protection from the harsh winter season. Tents, tools, blankets, solar lights, pots and pans can all help them survive.

Find out more about what is happening in Syria and how we’re responding here.

No family without shelter

We’re impatient to help families around the world who need us right now. We must act fast.

This is Ahmed’s family. They live in an emergency camp in Syria, and they received a ShelterBox which included a tent and essential aid items. Families like Ahmed’s all around the world are now in desperate need of shelter.

Families in Syria desperately need your help


Ahmad and his family were forced to flee their home in a village in northern Syria. They ran away from bombing by planes.

With almost no possessions, they found refuge in a neighbouring village. But they were still not safe.

They hid in a forest, taking cover under the trees unable to sleep because of the shelling, rain and cold.

Eventually, they managed to get to a displacement camp, where they were given essential aid to survive through the ruthless winter.

Families like Ahmad’s in Syria and all around the world desperately need your help right now.
