More than 5 million Syrians have fled their homes. At least 700,000 have fled to Lebanon, and more Syrians are now displaced than any other nationality, the UNHCR says. Many have left with nothing but the clothes on their backs and are now taking refuge in temporary accommodation without sanitation, healthcare or food.
Access to emergency aid is severely limited - people are living in areas too dangerous for the large aid agencies to enter.
Many of these families are too frightened to register for help. Distrusting the authorities, they daren't hand over their details to agencies supplying food and fuel. Christians feel they are in particular danger. They try to remain invisible, opting for hunger and cold in their anxiety to avoid violence and death.
But we can reach the unreachable. Working through our Lebanese partners, we are empowering a network of Syrian churches to provide emergency food parcels to the most vulnerable families.
A donation of £37.50 will provide a basic food parcel lasting a family one month.
That’s just £9.37 to feed a family for one week – less than the cost of a takeaway.
We've made a short video about the refugee crisis, with Embrace staff members who visited our Lebanese partners. Watch it now!
