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.
