ADRA is currently accepting donations, working with existing ADRA partners and programmes in Lebanon.

CWS is currently appealing for support. CWS and its partners are providing assistance that refugees need now in Jordan and Lebanon. Food, blankets, clothes, hygiene kits and medical assistance are high on the urgent list. ACT Alliance is meeting immediate needs and helping displaced families survive, focusing on education, healthcare, emergency assistance, livelihoods and psychosocial care.

Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand is currently appealing for support. Caritas is providing life-saving healthcare to Syrians across the country. Through our Peace in the Middle East campaign we have assisted Syrian refugees in Lebanon since the conflict began and have broadened our focus to include Syrian refugees now living in Jordan.

Oxfam NZ is currently appealing for support. In war-torn Syria, Oxfam is supporting repairs to damaged water networks and helping keep clean water flowing to hundreds of thousands of people. In Lebanon and Jordan, Oxfam is helping families get the essential supplies they need, while protecting public health with clean water and safe sanitation.

Save the Children is currently appealing for donations for the children of Syria. Save the Children is on the ground, delivering lifesaving food, clean water, shelter, hygiene and sanitation kits as well as setting up safe spaces for children to learn and play. So far we have reached over 2.4 million children across the region, but so many more are still fleeing the devastation, arriving frightened and traumatised and they need your help.

Tearfund is is currently appealing for support. Since 2011 Tearfund’s courageous partner has been working on the border of Lebanon and Syria to meet the immediate needs of some of the millions fleeing their homes with nowhere to go. 

UNICEF is currently appealing for support. UNICEF is supplying safe drinking water and food, and setting up child-friendly tents for Syrian children who've crossed into Macedonia. And in Lebanon, which is home to the greatest number of Syrian refugees, we are working around the clock trying to ensure the rights of each child are being met.

World Vision NZ is currently appealing for support. World Vision is on the ground right now providing life-saving aid to children and their families fleeing the Syrian conflict. We have been responding to the Syrian conflict since 2011 and have reached more than two million people with food, water, shelter and education.
