Syria Relief was born in Manchester, UK at the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011. Dismayed at the rapidly unfolding crisis in Syria, a group of friends of Syrian heritage came together to make a concerted effort to provide humanitarian aid in the region. The largely medical background of the Trustees made it easy to begin their work with emergency medical aid, but they swiftly expanded their range of programmes to cope with the needs, going into food aid and education. They have since branched out into a variety of crucial sectors, from specialist psychiatric treatment to prosthetic limb clinics and sustainable livelihood.
Their aim is simply to ‘relieve the suffering and support the future.‘ Their objective is to provide support and care to those 7.6 million internally displaced by the conflict, thus helping to reduce the mass migration from Syria. To this end, they directly support civilians and displaced communities while providing the tools and training to help them become self-sufficient once again.See more
