Syrian Crisis

Syria’s civil war is the worst humanitarian crises of our time. Continuous bombings are destroying crowded cities and horrific human rights violations are widespread. The past 4 years of war in Syria have completely ruined the country making millions in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, both inside and outside Syria in the refugee camps across the borders.

  • The UN estimates that $7.7 billion are required to meet the urgent needs of the most vulnerable Syrians in 2016.
  • The harsh winter has worsened life of the Syrian IDPs and refugees in the camps.
  • People are risking their lives on the way to Europe, hoping to find the refuge.

It is heart-wrenching to see the pictures coming out of Madaya. The children are forced to eating animals and leaves. Please make a special Dua’a for the besieged citizens and help ICNA Relief Canada to serve & save people of Madaya.
