Refugee Crisis Appeal

Refugees fleeing terrible conflict for Europe are in desperate need of help. Our partner, Caritas Greece, is providing support to tired and traumatised refugees, many of whom have small children.

We work in many of the countries where migrants and refugees originate from, as well as neighbouring countries that host refugees.

Syrian children drawing

The war in Syria has caused a humanitarian crisis on a staggering scale, and it’s getting worse every day. Over 500,000 people have been killed and more than 5.6 million children, women and men have fled to neighbouring countries.

Our partners in Lebanon, for example, work closely with children who have been affected by this crisis, and use counselling, drawing and play to help them come to terms with what they have experienced. This vital work means that these children can begin to feel hopeful about their future.

We will continue our essential work providing water, sanitation and food to vulnerable communities.
