Medair helps people who are suffering in remote and devastated communities around the world survive crisis, recover with dignity, and develop skills to build a better future.

The conflicts in Syria and Iraq have displaced millions of people. Many have fled to neighbouring countries. Some have risked their lives migrating to Europe in hope of a fresh start. However, most families remain displaced within their own country, where it is too dangerous to return to their homes.

Humanitarian organisations are working hard to provide basic relief and donor support is at an all-time high, but there is still nowhere near enough funding to provide for all of the people who need help. Medair is working in four different countries to help families displaced by conflict meet their most critical needs for shelter, water, and health assistance.
