Syria Crisis
The Syria crisis has been going on for four\five years now. {2011-2015} Half of the country's population is in need or relying on humanitarians assistance. 4 million people have transferred to neighbouring country's and 8 million have been displaced in Syria. Many have little amount of clothing and are living in garbages, shift shelters, tents and\or unfinished buildings. Tons of people are getting killed from this civil war. Currently, in Erbil, Iraq there are over 82,000 Syrian refugees scattered across the city. This war isn't only in Syria, it has spread into neighbouring countries as well. A few of those families have found a rental room. So, when we, Canadians donate to Red Cross we are helping Syrians and others live safely.

~ Children need psychological help because they experienced a lot of trauma
~ The children in the city will loose their connections with Syria
ex. A refugee from Syria named Sara is concerned and this is what she said,
“We are adults but there are many children needing psychological support as they experienced a lot of trauma. They need to be able to express what they feel.”
~ Some people may agree or be paralyzed by what they are doing and join them to kill others
~ The economy isn't stable any more, the poverty rate is more than doubled and they will need $1.4 BILLION to re-stabilize their economy
~ Families are now constantly moving in search for a safe place to stay because they need access to food, water and medical needs

The civil war has caused many children and adults to view horrible violence
This brutal war starting since Bashar al-Assad government, rebel forces want him not to be president
His, Basher's team is using horrible weapons against citizens for about 5 years killing innocent people
Also IS a group is also causing great danger in Syria with their extremist beliefs and basically controlling half of the country
They are causing a shortage of water and food so citizens aren't surviving in this way as well
Red Cross may not be able to stop the civil war or IS but they can help the citizens there. By giving water, food, health care, shelter and much more. The Red Cross has helped many Syrian refugees live better even with the war still going on. They have given health support, shelter, food and water since, they have been ruining water supplies. So, when we donate we help Red Cross purchase food and water for those in need.
