More suffering for the people of Syria

 

The recent escalation of conflict around Eastern Ghouta, Idlib and Afrin is once again forcing Syrian families to flee their homes. They cannot access basic services, are struggling to get food, housing, healthcare and other basic essentials for their families.

UNHCR is on the ground doing all we can to reach and protect them but we can't do this alone.
