Help Syrian families forced to flee their homes.

Now in the third year of conflict, intense fighting in Syria has driven millions of refugees to seek safety in neighboring countries, often escaping the violence on foot in the dark of night. Families find themselves in crowded refugee camps in foreign countries with nothing except the clothes on their backs. And children make up over half of the refugee population.

No one knows when these refugees will be able to return to their homes. Mercy Corps is providing emergency aid, clean water, food, and supplies to families living in refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon, as well as educational supplies for the children.

You can help. Your donation provides aid to families in need during this crisis.


Report From The Field
by Cassandra Nelson,
Director, Multimedia Projects, Mercy Corps

Leena

Leena (not her real name) fled Syria with her husband and young son after their home was destroyed in an aerial attack.

I met Leena in the Za'atari refugee camp, near Jordan's northwest border with Syria. In a dusty tent glowing with the light of the harsh desert sun, her 18-month-old son, Raed, reached for her, though she couldn't pick him up over her pregnant belly—she's due with her second child in just six weeks.

Leena (who asked me not to use her last name for fear of reprisals if she returns to Syria) had fled her home in Syria three weeks earlier with her husband and son after their home was destroyed in an aerial attack. Thankfully, no one was home when the house was bombed.

They had to escape in the night to avoid detection. The trip to the Jordanian border is very dangerous and many refugees have been shot at while taking flight from their homes. She told me they only brought the clothes they were wearing. They couldn't carry anything else with them.
