More than 11 years of conflict in Syria has killed hundreds and thousands of people, including women and children. The standard of living has been set back by decades. Roughly 6.9 million people are displaced within Syria while 6.8 million have been forced out of their country – which when combined, amounts to more than half of the country’s population in distress.
More than 70% of Syrians live in poverty. Millions have lost their livelihoods and are unable to meet their basic needs including access to food, clean water, and health care. The children of Syria are of the most affected. Many don't know life outside of war and will be forced to face the long-term effects of physical and mental trauma. As Muslims, it is incumbent upon us to help our brothers and sisters suffering across Syria.

The Idlib Governorate of Syria is home to a high proportion of out-of-school children. This project helped increase school enrollment and ensure quality education for over 22,000 young boys and girls across 60 different schools through the provision of food aid, school kits including bags and supplies, stipends for staff, and equipment including desks, chairs, and sports equipment. With your investment in this effort, IRUSA was able to help create conducive learning environments for the children of Idlib, increase school performance, and help them grow into the next generation of young adults aspiring to change the world.
