You are at risk if you travel to Syria

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office currently advises against all travel to Syria. The whole of Syria is unsafe, and many ordinary Syrians say that foreigners are not welcome. More information can be found on GOV.UK.

Supporting Syria

A number of well-established national and local charities are running campaigns to alleviate the crisis in Syria. They are experienced providers of humanitarian assistance in high risk, insecure and dangerous environments.

The Charity Commission strongly advises against individuals taking money into Syria in person. The quickest, safest, and most effective way to help the Syrian people is by contributing to a registered charity in the UK.

Check the Charity Commission website ( to ensure your chosen charity is registered. If a charity isn’t registered, you can’t be sure your donations will be used as intended.
