The IRC in Syria
How We Help
Working with global donors and regional partners, the IRC is currently delivering support to some 4 million internally displaced Syrians and refugees:
Winter kits: The IRC and its local partner organizations reached some 350,000 people inside Syria last winter with emergency assistance that included warm clothing and fuel for stoves. The IRC also delivered winter blankets, floor mats, clothing vouchers and electric heaters to 3,200 Yazidis who fled to Newroz camp following attacks on their homes in Sinjar in northern Iraq last year.
Medical aid: The IRC and its Syrian partners have reached thousands of Syrians with tons of medicine, medical equipment and medical training. The IRC has taught more than 100 Syrian doctors, nurses and EMTs skills in front line trauma medicine.
