Years of conflict in Syria and Iraq have created a humanitarian crisis that is affecting more than 20 million people. In Syria, 13 million need help, while in Iraq, nearly a third of the population are in need.
In both countries, Tearfund is providing life-saving aid, as well as helping people deal with the trauma of being caught in the crossfire.
We support an operational team in Iraq and four partners, while in Syria we have three partners. We are also supporting two partners in Jordan and two in Lebanon.
Since our involvement began, Tearfund has provided a wide range of material, emotional and psychosocial support. Help changes according to the seasons, as well as in response to funding.
