Give now to send aid to families running from violence.
Our emergency feeding program in Aleppo is already providing hot, cooked meals for 20,000 people every day.
But thousands more flee every hour as the last rebel-held areas fall. They have no food, nowhere to sleep. Help us meet their urgent needs.
$30 can provide sleeping bags for 2 people.
$250 can feed 10 families for a month.
$750 can provide sleeping bags for 50 people.
$1,500 can help a family return home.
Please give now.
Additional donations beyond the cost of emergency aid for our Syria response will be used where needed most.
Next week, we begin some of the very first home renovations in Aleppo. Our assessment team has already been inside the city, identifying the need and making preparations. We'll repair walls, replace doors and windows, and fix toilets—so each family has at least one safe, secure room in which to stay as they continue the process of rebuilding.
Today marks six years since Syria's civil war began. Nearly half a million people are dead or missing. More than half the country has been displaced. Yet you keep showing up. You’re distributing ready-to-eat food packages to families on the frontlines of conflict. When five villages were liberated from ISIS in Syria last week, you were there within hours. You’re in Aleppo standing with those returning home as they start the long, difficult work of rebuilding. Read more...
We delivered food, sleeping bags, and hygiene supplies to 7,000 people in 5 villages near Manbij in the Aleppo district. The villages were liberated from ISIS control hours earlier. Read more...
Momentum is starting to build for a push to capture Raqqa, in northern Syria, from ISIS. Raqqa is one of the last major cities held by ISIS in Syria or Iraq. It has been under ISIS control for more than three years.
Since December, you’ve provided more than 790,000 hot meals to displaced Aleppo families. In one of the most divisive, polarizing conflicts in modern history, you are serving all, without discrimination. Read more...
We’ve extended our emergency feeding program through the month of February. We began operating the kitchen last December, as thousands fled the fighting in eastern Aleppo. We will continue to monitor the situation in and around Aleppo to make sure families have what they need to hold out.
We just completed our two-week distribution of food packages, benefitting 155 displaced Syrian families. Because of fighting in the region, additional displaced families arrived just before the third distribution, and we were able to distribute additional food packages to meet their needs.
Today we began a two-week distribution of ready-to-eat food packages to displaced Syrian families. Each package contains 15 meals. We’re making three separate distributions in the same areas over the next couple of weeks, so families have enough food to get them through the harshest part of winter. Ready-to-eat meals are critical, because displaced families in this area have nothing to cook with.
As some begin returning to eastern Aleppo, a new UN report highlights two critical needs facing these families: repairing bombed-out homes and providing access to urgent medical care. Your donations are helping us meet both needs now. Read more...
As of today, we've expanded our Aleppo response by 10x, thanks to your generosity. In addition to extending our emergency feeding program through January, providing cooked meals for up to 25,000 people every day, our work in and around Aleppo now includes:
- Preparing long-lasting food packets for 35,000 people
- Starting a bakery, supplementing daily meals with bread and creating jobs for 20 displaced women
- Deploying 5 ambulances and 5 mobile clinics to provide urgent medical care in Aleppo and the surrounding area
- Repairing homes for 50 families returning to eastern Aleppo
- Distributing sleeping bags to returning families
We’re also mobilizing to bring emergency aid to families in active conflict areas, to ensure they have the food they need to survive. Read more...
The Syrian army announced today that it has taken full control of Aleppo. Meanwhile, 12,000 people from eastern Aleppo have been evacuated to the area where we’re feeding displaced families. Another 5,000 individuals who were evacuated from rebel-besieged territory west of Aleppo passed through this area, as well.
We are committed to showing up for everyone caught up in this brutal civil war. We're continuing to provide food and shelter for displaced families, even as we help those starting to return home. Read more...
We continue to scale up our food response in the Aleppo countryside. Funding was originally set to run out December 25, but your generosity has allowed us to extend this critical aid through the end of January. We’re also planning to distribute food packs for 3,000 families within the next 48-72 hours, so they can have at least one additional meal per day.
Meanwhile, we sent a team inside Aleppo city today to assess the damage as we prepare to winterize homes for 50 families—repairing walls, replacing doors and windows, fixing toilets—so each family has at least one safe, secure room in which to stay as they begin the long process of rebuilding. Every $2,000 you donate helps another family return home. Read more...
More than 650 Shia evacuees arrived in the Aleppo countryside, where we're operating our emergency feeding program. Their evacuation from areas west of Aleppo was part of a deal that essentially trades civilians trapped by rebel forces in these areas for civilians trapped in Aleppo by government forces.
Preemptive Love CEO Jeremy Courtney shared this update on our Aleppo emergency response today...
We've asked our Aleppo response leader to go into the city to assess repairs needed to homes, so that families can return. Temperatures are close to freezing tonight in the Aleppo area, and snow is expected this weekend. We are seeking access so we can help winterize homes—repairing windows and doors in particular—and facilitate returns in the weeks and months ahead.
We have doubled our Aleppo emergency response, thanks to your generosity. You're providing food for even more families fleeing the violence.
75,000 people have fled Aleppo in recent days. As many as 45,000 are currently in the area where we’re operating an emergency feeding program. We are serving more than 20,000 children, mothers, and fathers every day.
The Syrian military claims it now controls most of Eastern Aleppo. Several attempts to broke a ceasefire have failed, while thousands of families continue to flee.
An estimated 40,000 people have fled Eastern Aleppo, making a dire humanitarian situation even more dangerous for families.
We distributed 2,000 sleeping bags to keep those who've been displaced—many of them children—warm as winter closes in on Syria. These sleeping bags are made by other refugees, empowering one group of displaced families while helping to protect another. Read more...
We've begun providing daily emergency food rations for more than 20,000 people in the Aleppo countryside, just a few miles outside the besieged city. Currently, we have funding to provide food for fleeing families through December 25.
Preemptive Love is initiating another convoy of aid, heading toward Aleppo, with lifesaving food and sleeping sets for 25,000 people, many of whom are sleeping on the streets after their homes were destroyed in the siege. We urgently need funding to provide for those on the run.
Our Syrian network urgently requested winter supplies—food, medicine, and hygiene supplies—as the Aleppo siege enters its 96th day.
In Eastern Aleppo, infant formula now costs US$30. A pound of meat costs $18. People are sleeping in the streets—even with more than 2,300 airstrikes in the last two weeks alone. Thousands of families who were holding out until now are fleeing for their lives. Help is urgently needed.
Violence in Aleppo escalated significantly as forces affiliated with the Syrian government began capturing rebel-held neighborhoods in Eastern Aleppo. Thousands of families desperately need food and supplies.
We delivered 650 food parcels, enough to feed thousands of families outside the besieged, battered city of Aleppo. Read more...
