Syria Crisis Appeal

The Syria conflict is approaching its fifth anniversary. Fighting has forced more than 10 million people from their homes. 

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and millions are in urgent need of food, water, shelter and health care.

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