In order to relieve the suffering of Syrians we need your support
There are three ways you can help.

How to Donate
Syria Counts is not a charity and we do not accept donations. But we work with Syria Relief, a charity which does. To make a donation please visit their website.
It is important when you think about making a donation you give safely. Some charities may appear genuine, but sometimes they’re not.
Check before you give. If you’ve seen online ads for a charity check out its website. Does it have a charity number? If there’s a phone number call them to confirm they’re who they say they are. You can also search the name of the charity to see if it’s genuine: www.gov.uk/checkcharity.
If someone knocks at your door, check their ID and make sure the charity’s name, registration and landline numbers are printed on the collection bags and written materials.
Collections usually need a permit or licence from the local authority. If you’re in any doubt call or email the charity to check they’re collecting in your area.
If you’re approached by someone collecting in the street ask to see their ID badge, permit or licence.
If you agree to donate by direct debit only give your account number and sort code. Never reveal long card numbers, PIN numbers or security codes.
How to fundraise
There are many benefits to fundraising. If there’s something you’re good at you can use that skill, and in the process raise money Syrians desperately need. Or maybe you want to challenge yourself? Why not conquer that fear of heights and do a sponsored hang glide?
Here are some ideas to get you thinking.

How to spread the word
We need as many people as possible to know about the situation in Syria. We must not turn our backs on the thousands of Syrians who are still suffering as a result of the conflict. By reading and sharing their stories, we’re keeping their plight visible to the world.
