250,000 Flee Bombing – Idlib Syria

A massive air bombardment and ground offensive by Russian and Syrian government forces in Idlib is threatening to create the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of Syria’s horrific 9 year war — driving a quarter million already war-battered Syrian women, children, and men to flee the northwestern province for their lives … in the winter cold.

At least 50,000 Syrian displaced are now heading to Turkey.

Our relief teams are in place and ready to deliver your life-saving aid.

Please help the women, the children – those suffering in Idlib, Syria.
