Syria Relief was established in 2011 in response to the beginning of the Syrian crisis. Overwhelmed by the rapidly increasing disaster unfolding in Syria, a group of friends of Syrian heritage came together in order to provide emergency humanitarian aid, for what was initially assumed would be a short-term outreach.

We are now at the forefront of non-profit support on the ground in Syria, covering unique and critical areas, from specialist psychiatric treatment for children suffering from PTSD to prosthetic limb clinics.

We directly aid civilians and displaced communities while providing the tools and training to help them become self-sufficient.

Syria Relief has a solid network of committed management and logistics staff on the ground inside Syria – currently numbering at around 1,700. These connections mean we can deliver vital and efficient support to hard-to-reach rural and besieged areas.
