With bombs falling on northeastern Syria amid renewed fighting, as many as 300,000 people living in the area could be forced to flee their homes, tens of thousands on the move. Already the worst displacement on the globe, the Syrian refugee crisis promises to worsen, increasing suffering for vulnerable families and communities.

Lutheran World Relief has staff and partners working in northern Iraq and Lebanon, already assisting Syrian refugees who have fled years of war and conflict. Our staff in the area are preparing for a possible influx of refugees into surrounding areas to ensure a coordinated response.
