Syria’s Eastern Ghouta region is in the midst of an ongoing humanitarian crisis.

The region is already struggling under the weight of decades of fighting. Now a suspected chemical attack in the suburb of Douma has international tensions heightened even more.

Lutheran World Relief is working with partners on the ground to mount a response in Eastern Ghouta — a region largely cut off from humanitarian aid — to provide essential supplies to families, most of whom have little else to survive.

Our partners on the ground are currently assessing the situation, but we need to be ready to move quickly. Will you support this work with an emergency gift today?
