10 Years of Violence: The Syrian Crisis and How You Can Help through Save an Orphan

What started as a peaceful uprising against the president of Syria 10 years ago turned into a horrific civil war. The conflict has left more than 387,118 people dead, cities broken, bruised and drawn in other countries.

These numbers don’t include the 205,300 people who are said to be missing or presumed dead, including 88,000 civilians believed to have died of torture in government-run prisons.

As well as causing hundreds of thousands of deaths, more than 2.1 million civilians have suffered injuries or permanent disabilities as a result of the conflict, according to the SOHR.

More than 22 million have fled their home, displaced Syrian’s roam without a home, without families, with no place to call their own. Many of them are living in camps, while another 5.6 million are registered as refugees abroad. 

One million Syrian refugee children have been born in exile.

The Problem

As of January 2021,13.4 million people inside Syria were in need of some form of humanitarian assistance. The biggest issue amongst them is the lack of food as millions of children are chronically malnourished and sleeping hungry every night.

This is why we at Save an Orphan believe it’s important to shed light on the tragic nightmare that is a decade of War and suffering. 

Your donations are helping and so far we have helped hundreds of displaced children by providing emergency shelter to those who have lost their homes. Providing a safe space has allowed suffering children to feel a sense of normalcy. 

Your support comes in the form of UNHCR approved tents, access to rented accommodation or through the building of basic accommodation allowing those displaced to have a roof over their head.

"Whoever saves the life of one, it is as if he saved the whole of mankind”

Qur’an 5:32
