Videos: How Humanitarians Are Helping Syrian Refugees

By Alistair Reign, May 17, 2016. Alistair Reign News Blog.

These organizations and campaigns provide a range of aid: immediate relief with clothes, food and shelter; schools and training programs; rescue efforts inside Syria for after an attack and emotional support for kids; one group is even finding homes in Europe for refugees fleeing war. I am not personally endorsing the organisations in this article, I have simply scoured the internet and gathered a list of charities, government and non-government organizations for your consideration.

DonateSmall Projects Istanbul

The mission of Small Projects Istanbul is to facilitate access to formal education for Syrian refugees through its scholarship fund and to provide supplemental education that will assist students and families to succeed in Turkey and beyond, paving the way for better opportunities in the future. It also coordinates a craft collective for Syrian women to provide livelihood support.


Donate ~ Karam Foundation

Karam strives to direct 100% percent of your donations to impacting Syrian lives. We promise transparency and accountability for our work and projects. We cultivate trusted aid networks across Syria to deliver relief and services to areas far beyond the limited reach of international aid organizations.


Donate ~ The White Helmets

More than 50 bombs and mortars a day land on some neighbourhoods in Syria. Many are rusty barrels filled with nails and explosives, rolled out the back of government helicopters — bakeries and markets are the most commonly hit targets. When this happens The White Helmets rush in to search for life in the rubble – fully aware that more bombs may fall on the same site. These volunteers have saved 40,823 lives – and this number is growing daily.


DonateProject Amal ou Salam

Project Amal ou Salam, meaning Project Hope and Peace, is a grassroots organization dedicated to empowering Syria’s children to rebuild their country and work for peace. This is done through day camps with Syrian children, material donations (such as coloring books, games, and sports equipment), holiday events, and monetary support of schools both inside and out of Syria.

We are excited to have 30 international volunteers join us this March in Jordan to work with 800 kids for our bi-annual workshops, including arts, music, sports, health and photography!

DonateMigrant Offshore Aid Station

MOAS is a Malta-based registered foundation dedicated to preventing loss of life by providing professional search-and-rescue assistance to refugees and migrants in distress at sea. This charity exists to save children, with a fleet of rescue boats patrolling the Mediterranean to save migrants lost at sea.

Donate ~ Refugees Welcome

This German nonprofit matches people with spare rooms with refugees in need of housing. If you don’t have a spare bed in Germany, you can still donate to their groups. Greece is welcoming refugees with open doors since October 2015. Refugees Welcome are currently supporting groups in more than 20 countries with setting up “Refugees Welcome” groups in their respective country.


DonateHand in Hand for Syria

One of the few organizations that directly provides aid on the ground in Syria, including food, clothing, water, sanitation and crucial medical assistance to “help people to stay in Syria instead of fleeing to another country.” We have been at the forefront of humanitarian aid in Syria since the conflict began. Unlike most aid agencies, we work inside Syria, so your gifts will go straight to the people in most desperate need. And since we cover our costs in other ways, every single penny of your donation will go to Syria.

Donate ~ Watanili

 Our mission is to contribute to the re-building of Syria through grassroots local initiatives, focusing on the needs of the people. We carry out projects that encourage the development of education, art and culture, as well as provide a space for cultural expression. A recent project is 'Cinema on the Go,' using film to combat the effects of trauma on the children.


The links below are to several of the larger organizations helping refugees, migrants and internally displaced persons.

Before making a donation to one of the more prominent organizations, I recommend using a charity watchdog site. Charity Navigator is a good start. You can evaluate what percentage of donations go directly toward aid, versus overhead, among other factors. It also has a list of highly ranked charities helping Syrian refugees.

Donate ~ International Medical Corps

International Medical Corps has teams on the ground providing direct medical assistance to Syrian refugees in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. In the Turkish city of Gaziantep, not from the war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo, IMC helps run a service center for Syrian refugees that provides medical care, classes and job training.


Donate ~ Medical Teams International

Medical Teams International focuses on health and dental care for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Their volunteers “monitor chronic disease patients in their homes and provide families and communities with vital information on chronic disease recognition, management and disease prevention.”


Donate ~ Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps provides direct aid to Syrian refugees in the form of food and supplies, and by increasing access to clean water and sanitation, shelters, and safe spaces and activities for children


Donate ~ Save the Children

The charity provides emergency food, clothing and shelter for Syrian children, including clean water, medical treatment, schools, and centers for traumatized children inside Syria, and in Syrian refugee camps. Save the Children has helped more than 3.8 million people in the region — 1.6 million inside Syria.


Donate ~ Shelterbox

ShelterBox has been providing emergency shelter and supplies to families affected by the Syrian crisis in Iraq, Kurdistan, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria; including clothing, stoves and water filters.


Donate ~ UNICEF

The UNICEF agency focuses on assisting Syrian children by providing healthcare, nutrition, immunization, water and sanitation, and classes.


Donate ~ Oxfam

Oxfam provides aid to Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan. In Jordan’s Zaatari Camp, home to 83,000 refugees, Oxfam provides clean water, sanitation services and hygiene education to help ward off cholera and other intestinal diseases.

The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.” The embassy was adamant the event “had nothing to do” with the $15-billion arms deal and said it had been planned for years. Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, however, said it was notified of the “Cultural Days” on Jan. 14.
