About the Crisis

The Syrian civil war began in March of 2011. In the years since families have suffered under the conflict that has led to hundreds of thousands of deaths. The nation is torn apart and has seen a huge decline in the standard of day-to-day living. Because these are the circumstances that families are forced to live with, we see more and more individuals fleeing their homeland for safety. Over 5 million Syrians have fled the country as refugees, not knowing what would come of this decision.

As a refugee, the journey is a challenging one. Many men, women, and children die along the way, but for those that do survive there remains the challenge of making a life in an entirely new country. These refugees need our help. Join Zoë Bands in our mission to aid the refugees in need. Learn more about the Syrian crisis in the video below.
