Violence in Daraa, Syria, has been escalating rapidly, and the humanitarian situation is dire. Aerial attacks have caused thousands of people to flee their homes. People are having to flee so rapidly, they are unable to take any of their belongings with them – creating a huge need for humanitarian aid.

Those newly-displaced are in dire need of water, food, basic shelter, water and sanitation facilities, and protection. There has been almost no aid received and help is needed urgently.

Additionally, both Jordan and Israel have closed their borders, leaving displaced persons trapped with no place to go for aid. SRD is working closely with field staff and international partners to implement emergency aid distributions.
