What’s the Crisis?

What's the crisis?


Syria’s nearly five years of brutal civil war – together with attacks from ISIS – has created one of the greatest human tragedies in living memory.

  • Almost 500,000 Syrian people have died
  • Some 11 million – nearly half the population – have fled their homes
  • Almost 5 million are in vast camps in neighbouring countries

Who are these people?


These broken people are not economic migrants chasing a better future. They are refugees from war who above all else would love to return to their homes if they could.

Their only choice was to risk their lives by fleeing for safety and survival. Many left with only the clothes on their back and what they could carry.
