From theShelterBox website:
has launched an offensive in north-eastern Syria. As warplanes bomb parts of the
region and tanks arrive at the border, families just like ours face even more
When people are caught up in the fighting,
they’re left with very few options amidst the chaos. Some flee with what they
can pack on the back of a truck. Others may have no option but to stay
More than 250,000 people have already
received ShelterBox aid, since we first responded to the crisis in December
2012. This makes it the largest and most sustained response in our 19-year
history. However, today the need is as urgent as ever. Many Syrians have been
displaced several times and emergency shelter gives families some sense of
stability after constant upheaval.
With global Rotary support and by working with
our trusted in-country partners, we'll continue to help families in Syria with
essential shelter and aid.
