NORTH EAST SYRIA HUMANITARIAN EMERGENCY
The UN Refugee Agency is currently reporting that over 160,000 people are now displaced, following the conflicts in northeast Syria, including over 70,000 children. (UNHCR Syria situation report, Oct 15th 2019.) As the conflict escalates, many are expected to flee to the safer territories in northern Iraq. HPIC’s partner on the ground is urgently requesting medical aid in anticipation of the arrival of these families escaping recent military actions. Over 40 humanitarian medical kits (includes up to 24,000 treatments of essential medicines) are ready to be shipped, and HPIC has already made plans for a send shipment in early 2020. HPIC is currently in need of $ 10,000 CAD to provide safe and immediate delivery to these vulnerable populations. A gift today will provide essential medicines to thousands of families in life-threatening circumstances. Give a gift of hope today.
