Syria appeal

Bring hope to Syrian refugees

A Syrian refugee family in LebanonFor the past two years we've been responding to the emergency needs of Syrian refugees. We'll continue to provide food parcels and blankets, but we're also determined to respond to the longer-term issues by supporting schooling for Syrian refugee children in Lebanon.

More than 6.5 million Syrians have fled their homes. Around 1,000,000 have fled to Lebanon. Living in an abandoned building in the Bekaa Valley, nine-year-old Zahia and her family can do nothing but wait. Will they ever be able to return to their village in Syria?

For Zahia and her brothers and sisters, life is on hold. Without education, her potential will be wasted. And without education, how will her generation rebuild society when peace returns?
 
Our partners have set up a school near the town of Zahle in the east of Lebanon. The school is underpinned by Christian values, but does not discriminate against anyone - children from Muslim and Christian backgrounds are equally welcome. As well as teaching the Syrian curriculum, the school provides a safe, child-friendly space.
 

Just £12 would enable a child like Zahia to attend school for one week. 

We've made a short video about the refugee crisis, with Embrace staff members who visited our Lebanese partners. Watch it now!
