Hands Up for Syria Appeal – Four years on
Four years ago the Hands Up for Syria Appeal raised an astonishing £4.15 million which was doubled to a total of £8.3 million with matched funding from the Chairmen of Asfari and Saïd Foundations.
The proceeds from the Appeal were donated to Save the Children, International Rescue Committee (IRC) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). Thanks to the Appeal the three organisations were able to help over 111,010 children, young people and their families over the last four years.
Syrians now constitute the largest displaced population in the world, with at least half of those affected are children, and Covid-19 further complicates the humanitarian situation.
Please take a moment to read the final report which features stories of hope about people whose lives have positively changed thanks to this appeal’s generous donors.
