Support Syrians as they endure further suffering

With recent reports of further suffering including from attack with suspected chemical weapons in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, ordinary Syrians remain desperately in need of support. Penny Appeal aid is now making it through to those trapped in the most difficult of situations, including in Eastern Ghouta region, where our partners have been distributing aid to families taking refuge in shelters.

Help us continue to support those suffering from the devastating effects of this conflict. Click to provide food, household items and medical aid to help these vulnerable people live another day.

The children of Syria are growing up surrounded by destruction, disease and death. More than 80 percent of Syria's children have been injured, and around 3.7 million children have been born in the past five years amidst the ongoing conflict, meaning they have never known peace.


Living amongst the ruins, facing endless poverty and with no chance of enjoying a happy childhood, they are losing hope for the future.

Return that hope and give them a reason to live another day by donating now

Penny Appeal teams are on the ground providing vital aid to the people of Syria:

  • Working in neighbouring countries such as Lebanon, where refugee camps have become home to hundreds of thousands of people.
  • Supporting refugees arriving in Greece who have made the dangerous journey to Europe in the hope of finding a brighter future and peace
