Well over 4 million refugees have fled Syria since the start of the now four-year-old civil war. The war has killed over 200,000 people and millions have been left homeless and in desperate need of safety. Many families have no choice but to risk their lives to flee war and persecution.
Hundreds of thousands of refugees are now streaming across Europe in hopes of building a new life. It is the largest refugee crisis of its kind in the region since the Second World War and has overwhelmed the capacity of countries along their path to respond.
The conditions these refugee families face during the journey are very difficult. Along the route, many refugees have faced hostility and a lack of support with some forced to resort to journeying by foot and sleeping in public places.
ACC International Relief has launched a Humanitarian Relief Appeal to respond to this crisis. ACCIR is participating in a co-ordinated inter-agency response in partnership with Samaritans Purse. Funds will go towards providing emergency physical relief, counselling, migrant assistance and other services to displaced families in transit countries including Hungary and other European countries.
