The Syrian war has caused immeasurable hardship on Syrians, especially children. Thousands of Syrian children have been orphaned and are in profound need of assistance.

Your assistance will make a great difference in the lives of these girls and  their widowed mother.

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.

Please consider donating towards this noble cause. However small, your contribution will make a difference in the lives of these refugees.

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. Many families are struggling to find food for breaking their fast, whether it be due to being in the midst of a war zone or experiencing drought, famine, natural or manmade disaster, etc.

UHR’s teams in Jordan distributed food aid, fresh meat, and gifts throughout Jordan during Ramadan helping vulnerable families. UHR ensured that the families receiving food packages will have enough food for the duration of the holy month.

The food packages included nutritious food items like lentils, rice, tuna, beans, vegetables, sugar, oils, dates, noodles, spaghetti, milk, chicken broth cubes, and more. One food package served five to seven people. Bigger families received two food packages.

Thank you for helping us save the lives of the less fortunate this Ramadan. Your donation made a lasting impact.

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.

What can you do to help?

United Hands Relief is in Palestine, Jordan, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Rohingya, and Bangladesh arranging to provide emergency humanitarian aid to refugees before temperatures plummet this winter, preparing them for what could be a harsh season. Emergency provisions including food packages, fuel operated heaters, fuel, warm clothing kits, and blankets will be distributed to vulnerable families who rely completely on this support.

$25 provides a warm clothing kit for one person
$50 provides two blankets and a fuel powered heater
$100 provides an Emergency Food Package for one family
$150 provides warm clothing kits, a fuel powered heater, and blankets for one family

With your help, we can save the lives of many refugees and bring an end to the suffering of innocent children. Our goal is to reach 1,000 families. Act Now!

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.

Ongoing heavy rainfall has led to heavy flooding and destruction affecting Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan. It is reported that 1 million people have been affected and displaced by the flooding so far in the region.

The effects have been devastating in a region that is normally affected by drought. Now, the Horn of Africa is facing another crisis. Already vulnerable communities have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones.

Somalia

In Somalia, over 180,000 people have been forced to flee their homes due to the flooding. The UN says most of those affected are from the central town of Beledweyne, where 3 people drowned last week.

Another 10 people died on Monday when a rescue boat capsized, leaving up to 20 others missing.

Kenya

An estimated 12,000 people have been displaced, especially in the northern and eastern parts of the country, and 29 people were killed. The agriculture industry was also hard hit, with over 10,000 livestock animals killed by the flooding.

South Sudan

Rains have devastated vast areas of South Sudan since July, according to a recent United Nations report.

The wet weather has made the humanitarian situation worse in a country where more than 3 million people were already in need of assistance.

United Hands Relief teams have assessed the situation on the ground. UHR is responding by delivering life-saving aid to the affected areas.
