On October 9, 2019 after nearly a decade of nation-wide conflict, a Turkish-led incursion entered northeast Syria, reigniting the cycle of violence, trauma, worry and uncertainty for people living in the area. Once again, civilians are the first victims of bombings.
Humanity & Inclusion is deeply concerned about the safety of civilians and humanitarian aid workers. Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, Humanity & Inclusion's teams have been working tirelessly with Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq. Our rehabilitation experts provide vital care—physical therapy, psychosocial support, mobility devices, etc.—to injured Syrian civilians and those with disabilities.
When war comes to cities, civilians need your help. Today, more than ever, your support is essential. Make a gift today.
Humanity & Inclusion in Syria
Since the summer of 2012, Humanity & Inclusion has deployed rehabilitation teams and partners to help Syrians in Jordan and Lebanon. According to UNHCR, 6.6 million Syrians have been displaced internally, and more than 5.6 million people have fled Syria to Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, and other countries.
Now nine years after the start of the current crisis, Syria is bogged down in a bloody conflict that has claimed more than 450,000 lives. Fighting is taking place in residential areas, with no distinction made between civilian and military targets.
In many parts of the country, health facilities have been driven underground, with scant resources to cope with the constant influx of injured people.
Our Current Work
In Syria, Humanity & Inclusion continues to diligently carry out its mission, which is to:
- Provide rehabilitation services
- Distribute aid
- Facilitate risk education
- Ensure refugees with disabilities have access to basic services
Humanity & Inclusion helps hospitals and clinics care for injured refugees by supplying rehabilitation equipment and organizing physical therapy sessions for patients.
The organization supports vulnerable refugee families through distributions of food and hygiene items.
Risk education teams educate Syrians about the dangers posed by explosive remnants of war. In particular, children are taught how to identify and avoid ordnance.
Ensure People with Disabilities Have Access to Services
Humanity & Inclusion works in close collaboration with local and international organizations to ensure that services for refugees are accessible to people with reduced mobility.
