What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The volatile conflict in Syria has created a dire need for humanitarian aid in the region. Within Syria, food security, education, healthcare, livelihoods, and infrastructure have taken a major hit. Millions of Syrians are living as displaced persons in their own country without permanent shelter or access to meet their basic needs. A large exodus of Syrians fleeing the country has created a regional refugee crisis that has impacted the entire world. Syria is the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Health

All of SRD’s health programs operate on a holistic, preventative continuum of care, ensuring that each patient receives follow-up care and access to comprehensive services that address both the physical and mental well-being of the patient.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth
At-risk youth
Victims and oppressed people
Immigrants and migrants

Malnutrition has remained a major concern, especially among pregnant women, infants and young children throughout the Syrian crisis. High levels of food insecurity due to agricultural damages from the destruction of crops and livestock and escalating food prices, have put pregnant and breastfeeding women at high risk, increasing the rate of birth defects among newborns and stunting childhood development.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Infants and toddlers
Immigrants and migrants
Victims and oppressed people
At-risk youth

The conflict has rendered the vast majority of Syrian men, women, and children vulnerable and in dire need of protection programs.

The most vulnerable Syrian populations in need of protection are women—who are more likely to undergo sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV)—and children, who are more likely to be targeted for physical or sexual abuse, kidnapping, or have their social and psychosocial needs neglected as their young minds attempt to cope with the traumas of war. SRD has responded to protection needs in Syria by integrating protection services into a variety of programs.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Children and youth
People with disabilities
People with diseases and illnesses
Victims and oppressed people

Right now in Syria, over 2.4 million students are out of school, and nearly 40 percent are girls. Children who are able to attend school face a lack of resources necessary to offer quality education, overcrowded classrooms, as well as facilities and buildings with insufficient water and sanitation facilities, electricity, heating, or ventilation.

To address the need for more education and training in Syria, SRD has established a university and a high school for secondary and post-secondary students to continue their studies, as well as an education program for children.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Students
Victims and oppressed people

The destruction of their homes has uprooted many Syrian families leaving men, women, children, the elderly, and the disabled—essentially all members of society—deeply affected and exposed. While temporary housing structures such as tents in IDP camps have been available to a subset of the population, the majority of individuals and families have been forced to seek makeshift shelters, leaving them exposed and vulnerable.

SRD has responded to the need for Shelter programming in Syria through a variety of different projects that have created or rehabilitated homes and shelters. We provided shelter, water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) well as rehabilitation, and health assistance in Aleppo where a large number of IDPs and indigenous communities have been living in makeshift homes and shelters. The project was started to provide a healthier living standard and to better integrate IDPs with the local population.

Population(s) Served
Families
Unemployed people
People with disabilities
Victims and oppressed people

Since SRD was founded in 2011, NFI programming has been a staple programmatic sector of aid distribution for SRD, whether through a stand-alone project or, more often, integrated in projects that also implement programming from other sectors such as Health, Protection and Shelter. NFI distributions have included winter kits, hygiene kits, kitchen kits, solar panels and vouchers.

Population(s) Served
Families

Food Security programming has been a continuous sector of operation for SRD, both as stand-alone projects and also integrated into projects with other sectors, including Health and Nutrition. SRD’s food security programming seeks to ensure optimal health, growth and development for families, most importantly children, by addressing Syrians’ urgent need for basic necessities and access to quality, nutritious food.

Population(s) Served
Families
Economically disadvantaged people
Victims and oppressed people

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SRD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing humanitarian aid to Syrians affected by violence, hunger, poverty, injury and displacement. Our mission is to provide crisis humanitarian relief and plant the seeds of sustainable development for the people of Syria.

With the support of our generous donors and grants from our partners, SRD funds and operates a number of humanitarian aid projects that address the most urgent aid needs inside Syria and for refugees in neighboring Jordan.

Beneficiaries are determined based upon each family's needs and individual circumstances. Priority is always need-based and given to orphans, widows, the disabled, single-parent households, those who have been injured in conflict and require immediate attention and other families in need.

Our programs tackle a variety of international development sectors but primarily serve to meet the needs of the people through comprehensive needs assessments. The sectors we provide care in include Health, Nutrition, Protection, Empowerment, Education, Shelter, Food Security, Livelihoods, and Non-Food Items.

Our organization employs over 700 local staff members in regional offices throughout Syria to implement our programs. Staff members include medical personnel, field aid workers, engineers, architects, and others.

As of early 2018, we have distributed more than $50 million in aid (including in-kind donations) to over 3.3 million Syrians in need.
