While it started as a grassroots pro-democracy movement, the Syrian civil conflict has progressively become an international affair. While the offensive in 2018 against the Islamic State yielded results, the conflict has continued through 2019 and 2020 leading to new internal displacements of populations and destruction of key infrastructures. The context volatility and unpredictability is impairing rapid and safe access to the most vulnerable populations and the humanitarian response remains today highly challenging.

Active in the Aleppo Governorate since 2013, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL provides access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for displaced Syrians as well as those hosting them. New intervention zones were also progressively opened in north-eastern Syria (Ar-Raqqah, Al-Hassakeh, Der-Ez-Zor Governorates).
SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL adapted its provision strategy for water, sanitation and hygiene services by restoring water networks, with the aim of reducing and then stopping water truck deliveries. In addition, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL is today leading a major consortium of international actors intervening in health, WASH in health, WASH, shelter, protection and emergency response in northeast Syria. This strategy was possible by unprecedented and privileged access conditions negotiated by SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL in the intervention zones.
In North West Syria, the situation remains alarming. New massive displacements of population in Idlieb region occurs regularly, literally threatening the life of affected people. SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL is active in the North of Idlieb province and carry out life-saving activities for displaced people, providing essential services as water supply.
Today, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL and its partners are intervening through both emergency response and longer-term interventions in northwest and northeast Syria.
