Syrian Crisis Four years of suffering
It’s four years since the conflict in Syria erupted and today it’s the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. More than 200,000 people have been killed and 11.5 million have fled their homes – equivalent to half the country’s population.ha As people continue to seek a safe place to escape from the fighting, Tearfund’s partners are providing food, help with shelter, clothing, stoves and hygiene goods. Eventually, we hope to help refugees return to their homes. SYRIA
Hiba’s story When Sleiman died in a bomb blast in the Syrian city of Homs, his wife Hiba was left to bring up their young son Jamal. Their living conditions deteriorated and hunger became a big issue as they only had one meal a day. Since being linked up with a Tearfund partner, we have been supplying Hiba and Jamal with food. Gradually, they are regaining their strength and vitality.
