Make Lent Count! - Be a lifeline to the most vulnerable in Syria

The war in Syria is now in its ninth year and is currently the largest humanitarian and refugee crisis of our time. Join us and spend this year's Lent in solidarity with millions of Syrian men, women and children by taking part in our Make Lent Count campaign.

The last eight years in Syria have been years of brutal conflict, bombing, massive destruction, and far too many lives have been lost. With no clear end in sight, millions of people in the country are facing alarming levels of suffering. Many families have had to flee on multiple occasions and are still facing greater hurdles to finding safety and peace of mind. Their situation is a continued cause of suffering. Malteser International is providing life-saving medical help for people affected in the conflict.

This Lent, your generosity will give vital support to the vulnerable people suffering in Syria. Give something up for Lent and donate the amount you save to our work in Syria.

Your gift of €30 can help a person in critical condition receive blood transfusion

Your gift of €50 can help a pregnant woman get life-saving caesarean section

€120 can provide mattresses and other household items for a family that has lost everything

Your generous gift can support
our efforts in Syria. Please give whatever you can!

Yusuf's story

For many Syrian children living with chronic diseases, the war means not only coping with bombs, but also the challenge of their unmanaged health problems. 14-year-old Yusuf suffers from a chronic hepatic dysfunction. Our partnership with Hand in Hand foundation is enabling him receiving palliative treatments at the Jabel al Zawiyah pediatric clinic in Idlib.
