Long-term violence and political instability have created a drastic humanitarian situation across large parts of the Middle East. Fighting in Syria and Iraq in particular has led to the death of hundreds of thousands, and the creation of tens of millions of refugees and displaced people who have in turn put enormous pressure on the resources of countries around the region that have offered them shelter. Malteser International’s work in the Middle East is mainly focused on providing aid to these displaced people, as well as supporting overburdened local medical and social structures in their host countries.
