Syrians are in desperate need of food and winter aid. As the leading provider of humanitarian aid in Syria, Sunrise-USA works tirelessly to administer various aid programs to help Syrians trapped inside the conflict-ridden nation.
In 2017 we pledged $225,000 toward emergency aid packages. In 2016, we pledged $200,000 for emergency food aid in the areas where it is most needed inside Syria to support internally displaced families.
