International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Map and photos: IRC response to Syria crisis

One in every four Syrians has been displaced by a devastating civil war.  A staggering 1.5 million people have been forced to flee the country — with thousands more crossing borders every day as violence surges.  More than one-third of these refugees are children under 12, some of whom left their homes without a close relative.  

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is on the ground to help. This infographic and the following photos illustrate how your support is translating into lifesaving assistance both within Syria and in neighboring countries:

Three IRC schools at camps inside Syria serve 1,000 children by providing education and counseling to help them cope with trauma. We also reunite children and families who were separated while fleeing violence in Syria.
