Syria has been in the news for a long time now given the atrocities inflicted on them on the hands of various entities. Ever since the civil war in Syria started in 2011, the people have been having a hard time. The conditions in the area are so bad that many people are fleeing the country. The number of internally displaced people has been increasing by the day with millions on the run to save their lives!

In the latest news, the bodies of around 10 refugees were found frozen in Lebanon near the Syrian border! As they tried to run away from the bombing and violence on their native land they had no idea of the hardships they’d have to experience and sadly met their doom. This is just one of the many miserable occurrences experienced by the Syrians.

A lot of Syrians have already fled their country leaving behind everything they owned due to the conditions in their homeland. Of the people who have successfully reached other countries, a huge majority is without any place to live and is devoid of the basic necessities of life. While around 5 million Syrians are seeking refuge in neighboring countries like Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Turkey, around 6 million people are displaced with around 13.5 million still in need of financial and medical assistance.

A lot of NGOs are working hard to get aid across to these people in need helping the IDPs to settle in places they have migrated to. However, there are not many organizations working for the IDPs within Syria. HCI (Human Concern International), an NGO working for the betterment of people all over the world, is one of the few NGOs which are not only providing aid to the Syrian IDPs in other countries but are also helping the people in need within Syria!

Since 2012 HCI has been working hard helping out the people of Syria. However, in order to continue helping these distressed people out, HCI needs your help to assist them in their mission of providing aid to these people.
