After 10 years of conflicts, the drama continues...
14.6 million people need assistance
85% of households are unable to meet their basic needs
5.3 million people internally displaced
872.261 people helped


In 2022, 14.6 million people in Syria — around 70% of the population — needed humanitarian assistance, 1.2 million more than in 2021.

5.3 million people were displaced within Syria, whichwas once again the largest number of internally displaced people in the world. Their needs remained extensive.

The country’s economic situation continued to deteriorate, with high inflation, the devaluation of the Syrian pound and the rising cost of basic goods. The number of people who were able to meet their own essential needs and access basic services fell again. 85% of households could not meet their own vital needs.

Syria was also faced with a food crisis, recurrent winter storms, a cholera epidemic, a severe water crisis and the increasing impact of climate change. All these factors have led to additional population movements.

Despite the complex environment in Syria, our NGO managed to maintain its capacity to deliver rapid, large-scale responses, as well as offering longerterm support when possible. Our teams provided sustainable solutions for around one million Syrian men, women and children, by rehabilitating many key facilities (schools, health centers, irrigation channels, water networks, etc.). They also supported small companies and agricultural activities.

In parallel, our organization carried out activities to protect people against the cold following winter snowstorms, implemented a coordinated response to the cholera epidemic and provided multi-sectoral assistance to displaced people. Hundreds of thousands of people benefited from these activities.
