LATEST HORROR: YOUNG CHILDREN KILLED BY CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN SYRIA


Children killed in their beds in a suspected chemical attack are the latest casualties in the terrible conflict in Syria. Like you, ShelterBox is utterly horrified. Killing civilians is inexcusable and we condemn the use of chemical weapons. This is an appalling breach of international law.

Since last winter, ShelterBox and our partner Hand in Hand for Syria have been saving lives in the area of this latest attack – and we are ready to respond. Right now, we are distributing our existing ShelterBox aid, including ShelterKits, blankets and solar lights across Syria and Iraq. So far in 2017 ShelterBox aid has been provided to 3,430 families, and thanks to supporters like you we have been able to help over 20,000 families since the war began. 

ShelterBox has a long association with Hand in Hand for Syria and other partners in the region. Our thoughts are with our brave aid colleagues, and with all those families suffering in this seemingly intractable war
