Syria
in focus

Syria crisis. The ICRC is helping both people inside Syria, who are facing extremely difficult conditions because of the conflict, and the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq. In cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), we are distributing food and other essentials, restoring water supplies, and supporting medical services.
