Syria Crisis Appeal

Fighting in Syria has forced about 12 million people to flee their homes. More than 200,000 have been killed, with many more injured or detained. Right now, millions of people are in urgent need of food, water, shelter and healthcare.

This huge humanitarian crisis shows no sign of ending. The British Red Cross is calling for more funds to support affected people in Syria and neighbouring countries.
