Founded in November 2011 by Syrian-Americans Dr. Jihad Qaddour and his daughter Jomana Qaddour, Syria Relief and Development (SRD) was created to provide humanitarian relief to Syrian civilians amid conflict in the country. The Qaddours desired to ease the escalating humanitarian crisis and alleviate suffering for the people of their original homeland. Their memories of happiness and love, in what was once one of the most historic and beautiful countries in the world, guided their hearts to developing an organization that reflected the beauty and hope of Syria’s land and people.

SRD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing humanitarian aid to Syrians affected by violence, hunger, poverty, injury and displacement. The volatile situation in Syria has created a dire need for food, shelter and medical care. SRD is working to address these needs through our established programs within Syria and in surrounding regions. As of early 2018, we have distributed more than $50 million in aid (including in-kind donations) to over 3.3 million Syrians in need.

SRD was incorporated in the State of Kansas in November 2011. We are based in the U.S. with offices in Amman, Jordan and Gaziantep, Turkey.
