9 years of war.
It’s impossible to understand what that means for people; ordinary Syrian people, who have had their lives turned upside down in the conflict.
Over 13 million Syrian people need urgent humanitarian aid, according to the UN. Millions of people don’t have access to clean water, and Syria’s medical infrastructure is on the brink of collapse, with more than half of hospitals and healthcare facilities damaged or destroyed. 2.8 million Syrian children are not in school, and are missing out on the education they need.
The war has caused the worst refugee crisis of our generation. There are 6.2 million internally displaced people in Syria - including 2.5 million children - and 6.7 million Syrian refugees, who have fled to mostly developing countries, like Turkey and Lebanon.
With so much destruction, it’s difficult to understand how we can help Syrian refugees and internally displaced people. But there is hope.
Our volunteers are on the ground in Syria and Turkey, providing food parcels and safe water, while our bakery and hospital support tens of thousands of Syrians with food and vital healthcare.

Located in Northern Syria, near Aleppo, Al Huda Hospital was built and funded by SKT Welfare. It is the only medical facility providing healthcare for an estimated population of just under one million people.
Headed by a dedicated team of surgeons, it comprises an Emergency Room, ICU unit, fully equipped operating theatre, X-Ray and ultrasound room, sterilisation room, pharmacy, laboratory and wash room, as well as a clinic for minor injuries.
We are currently serving 13 towns and 110 villages and targeting those who are traumatised and require orthopaedics or neurosurgery.
Our hospital treats 350 patients daily, has cared for approximately 144,000 patients in the emergency room, has treated 1,853 patients in intensive care, helps 10,500 patients each month and has performed 23,890 operations to date.
Please support our incredible Al Huda Hospital, so we can continue treating displaced and disadvantaged Syrians.
Donate to our Al Huda Hospital as part of our Syria appeal, and you could save a life.
Our bakery, located in Idlib, is a lifeline for thousands of Syrian people.
Every day, our volunteers bake and distribute bread to hundreds of families struggling to survive in seven local refugee camps. We reach around 10,500 people every single day.
One tonne of flour produces 1,000 packs of bread, with each pack providing the average Syrian family with enough bread for one meal. Just £3.50 provides 10 packs of bread, with 7 loaves in each pack. To date, the bakery has benefitted an incredible 7.2 million individuals!
Fresh bread is life-sustaining and vital to Syrian family life; and it is one thing that displaced Syrian families can rely on, every day, so please keep on supporting this fantastic project.
Donate to Syria today, and provide fresh, nourishing bread to Syrians in need.
Water cuts and poor sanitation in Syria are posing serious health threats and leaving millions without safe water.
In response, we are providing safe water to Syrians – from drilling wells and installing hand pumps, to delivering clean water directly to homes.
Every day, from dawn until dusk, our dedicated teams drive our water trucks to Syrian families, with each truck containing 30 barrels of water – a typical Syrian family receives five barrels of fresh water with each delivery.
We also survey, commission and install hand pumps and fresh water wells in areas where clean water is desperately needed. We have built 60 hand-pumped wells in Damascus, which provide fresh water to 5,000 people every day.
We also built a shallow well at Qah Refugee Camp, serving 2,000 people daily, as well as three deep wells in Ghouta, providing clean water to thousands.
Please support our vital water projects, so we can continue providing Syrians with safe water.
Since 2014, SKT Welfare has been at the forefront of aid shipments to Syria from the UK and, most recently, Chicago.
We ship our containers approximately once a month, and they contain essentials, such as food, blankets, shoes, winter clothing, like coats, hats, socks, and gloves, along with non-perishable items, such as baby formula, rice, pasta, canned food and medical equipment.
To date, we have given 252,500 people food aid in these vulnerable areas — with over 1000 food parcels and two tonnes of rice being delivered on a monthly basis! We also provide nutritious meat for Syrian families through our Qurbani distributions, and have provided 58,300 Syrian refugees in Turkey with life-saving food.
We take great pride in seeing our aid delivered – from start to finish. Because we oversee the entire process, we make sure that our aid goes directly to Syrians in need - which is how we can assure you that 100% of your Syria charity goes to the people and projects we serve.
Donate to Syria today, in the knowledge that your donation will provide much-needed, nutritious meals, delivered every month.
Since 2012, SKT Welfare has been delivering winter aid to refugee camps throughout Syria.
Winter is the hardest season to bear for displaced families, who have already gone through unspeakable trauma and loss. Without proper clothing or bedding, 7 million children suffer in temperatures as low as -11°C.
Our winter packs contain blankets, thermals, fleece jackets, gloves, socks and winter hats, helping to make winter more bearable and to reduce the risk of winter related illnesses. We distribute 70,000 winter packs every year, with your help!
Please donate to our winter appeal, to help keep a Syrian family warm.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said:
"A Muslim shall never leave another Muslim helpless in the time of need."
Our SKT Welfare volunteers work tirelessly on the ground in Cox’s Bazar, delivering food parcels to vulnerable refugee families. Each parcel comprises nutritious, essential items.
