The social and economic collapse of Syria
Syrians face hyperinflation, food shortages, and joblessness. The fractured Syrian economy went into another freefall in 2020, in part because of Covid-19. The depreciation of the Syrian Pound, mismanagement of the economy and international sanctions have hit families hard. Food prices are 236% higher than in December 2019.
Bombing causes long-term physical and psychological trauma. At least 75,000 civilians have been killed or injured by explosive violence. 42% of surveyed households report children are showing signs of psychosocial distress, such as nightmares, sadness, and anxiety.
Bombs have shattered water mains, electricity networks, schools, and hospitals. Destruction of public infrastructure means that approximately 50% of health facilities can no longer function at full capacity. Even in areas where conflict has subsided, access to basic services is limited.
