Syrian Refugees - Where Most Needed

Anglican Aid has three programs which directly support Syria's in light of the current humanitarian crisis:

  1. Good Shepherd School, Lebanon
  2. Damascus Church Aid, Syria
  3. Hope and Trust Amman, Jordan

One of our projects works within Syria, providing aid and assistance to those who are unable to flee the country. The other two projects work directly with Syrian refugees who have fled the country and often find themselves in similar, if not worse, living conditions. Please click on the projects to find out more. Our Jordan project has no individual page. It supports Syrian refugees to complete documentation for repatriation to Australia, USA and Canada. Three family units have come to Australia and are supported through three Anglican Churches in Sydney since Hope and Trust commenced. Hope and Trust has links with the International Church (Anglican) in Amman.

All donations made through this page will be used for the most urgent aid and assitance purposes to Syrians both inside and outside their country.

Anglican Aid is committed to expending all funds raised in emergency projects in the country where the emergency occurred and will use all donated funds in the country where the emergency occurred to assist long term development objectives. Emergency funds are not retained for emergencies elsewhere.

Gifts over $2 to this appeal are tax deductible.
