Medair sends teams to the Syrian border to bring urgent relief to families fleeing for their lives.
Conflict in Syria has erupted into a full-scale civil war endangering lives in almost every community in the country. Desperate families, caught in the crossfire, are leaving everything behind and fleeing into neighbouring countries.
More than 250,000 Syrians have already fled to Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Turkey. On 11 September 2012, UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards commented on the speed of the exodus, calling it “an extraordinary acceleration of this crisis.”
