In my role as a medical doctor, I have travelled inside Syria during the current conflict and worked in some of the field hospitals in Idlib and with the Aleppo Medical Council. I witnessed first hand the atrocities and suffering Syrian refugees are trying to escape from.

Ghouta,  a city that has been under siege is experiencing constant bombardment- no human being should have to live through the trauma and insecurity of impending death from aerial strikes. So many have been killed needlessly. We CANNOT wait until a political compromise is negotiated to help the vulnerable. Aid efforts MUST CONTINUE! 
My family and I have been fundraising and working with Syrian refugees for over 6 years now and have collectively raised over half a million pounds for this cause. However, we cannot become complacent as this is only a drop in the ocean of assistance that is needed.
Thank you for all your support so far; I hope that you can continue to support our work in the year ahead as we are aiming to facilitate emergency aid in every critically hit area as we can. We are in this for the long run- for as long as the war continues and families need help.

Community Fundraising for Syrian Refugees

Millions of innocent lives have been affected by the violence in the last 7 years in SYRIA. Hundreds of thousands are already dead.

Our fundraising campaigns include climbing Kilimanjaro4Syria, BenNevis4Syria, Snowdon4Syria, Baking Cakes4Syria, applying Henna4Syria, serving Icecream4Syria, running Charity Makeup Workshops4Syria and many other initiatives! We're asking you to DIG DEEP for ongoing projects that we have helped set up through this charity!! The need for medical & emergency supplies is dire! We thank you for all your support in raising this money so far. However, the situation is ongoing and efforts MUST CONTINUE. Millions are still living in hardship.
