What we do in Syria

What We Do

We have been there since the beginning of the crisis.

We have reached 2.2 million children in Syria

We provide emergency and lifesaving support, combined with early recovery activities that help restore basic services for children and their families.

Our goal is to ensure that every child in Syria survives, learns and is protected. We have reached over three million Syrians to date including over two million children. We have supported seven primary health care clinics, a maternity hospital, Child Friendly Spaces, as well as 125 education facilities, which include formal schools, informal learning centres and vocational training schools to support education at all levels.

We provide food and nutrition support to ensure children are healthy and well nourished, and help families find sustainable incomes to meet their needs.

Our work also raises awareness of child protection issues. We provide mental health and psychosocial support for the most marginalised and vulnerable children, including unaccompanied and separated children. Through our family tracing and reunification work, we help reunite children that have been separated from their families.

We focus on inclusion, diversity and gender. And, we advocate for child-centred early recovery in Syria, which puts the needs of children and their communities at the heart of recovery and rehabilitation.
