Support Syria’s Heroic Civil Society

topic:Humanitarian Aid
type:Donation, NGO, Petition
by:Yair Oded

It’s been a decade since the people of Syria rose up to unseat the dictator Bashar al-Assad. The bloody civil war, which claimed the lives of over half a million Syrians and turned millions of them to refugees fleeing for their lives, continues to rage.

As the world grapples with the ongoing devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to remain alert to the dire situation in Syria, and for the international community to unite in an effort to alleviate the Syrian people’s plight and promote peace in the region.

The Syria Campaign is a non-profit organisation working to support the Syrian civil society in its efforts to survive the onslaught of war, famine, and displacement. 

The organisation conducts campaigns and interventions that both increase public awareness globally and provide help to Syria’s civil society.

“We’ve raised the profile of groups such as the White Helmets rescue workers, helping secure them millions of dollars to continue their life-saving work and making them famous around the world. We’ve supported some of the bravest women in the world taking their ‘Freedom Bus’ across Europe. We’ve successfully campaigned to block Europe selling aviation fuel to the Assad regime, secured a UN resolution banning the trade in Syrian antiquities, and supported Syrian humanitarians calling out the problems at the heart of the UN’s flawed aid operation. All this and much, much more.”

On the Campaign’s website, you’ll find information about ongoing initiatives, petitions, and actions which you can support. You may also pledge a donation to help keep their operation going.
