War broke the social and business ties that bound neighbors to their community. Millions scattered, creating the largest refugee and displacement crisis of our time. About 6.7 million Syrians are now refugees, and another 6.2 million people are displaced within Syria. Half of the people affected are children.
More Syrian civilians flee amid the recent violence escalation on Syria’s northeastern town of Ras al-Ain in the Hasakah province along the Turkish border.

This Ramadan, United Hands Relief gave Zakat Al Fitr (Fitra) to thousands of impoverished individuals in several countries – Jordan, Palestine, Rohingya, Bangladesh, Yemen and East Africa.

During this blessed month of Ramadan – 2019, United Hands Relief is thankful to all our generous donors for the opportunity to help vulnerable families in various countries across the world.

As winter unfolds, refugees across the Middle East will soon encounter freezing temperatures. In Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and Rohingya. United Hands Relief is distributing essential items to help people brave this winter.
Children are particularly vulnerable. Many are surviving in tents or makeshift shelters with little infrastructure to support them. Children are sleeping on cold grounds wearing light clothing, which can lead to serious health risks.
Many refugee families are struggling to keep warm with few resources and job opportunities. The cost of keeping a home adequately heated during the colder months is beyond their means.

45 plus Syrian Refugee families in Jordan were abandoned by their sponsors and urgently need our support to survive.
During the seven years of conflict in Syria, over 660,000 registered Syrian refugees have sought refuge in the small nation of Jordan.
In a country with high unemployment and limited natural resources, opportunities for Syrian refugees to work legally are extremely limited. Refugees have found themselves trapped in limbo with little to do but wait – for over half a decade. Many are in constant fear of arrest or deportation.
The UHR team in Jordan has received many calls from refugee families who have been abandoned by their sponsors without warning. The situation has been investigated and it is confirmed by the Ministry of Social Development that these families no longer receive any form of assistance. These families do not have permits and are 100% dependent on aid received from relief organizations. Their rent was paid in full, and they received cash assistance for food, water, health and education.
Syrian refugees in Jordan are left desperate without any new sources for employment or way to support their families. UHR is appealing on their behalf for your generous support for families who have lost everything. They are depending on you to continue living month to month.
• $200 covers the rent for one month for one family
• $100 for food, water and hygiene for one month
• $50 for health and education for one month
• For $4,200, you can sponsor a family for an entire year.
