Emergency relief services are delivered by Al-Ihsan Foundation according to what is needed in the times of the crisis.

Emergency relief organisations provide immediate financial and/or material support to people in financial crisis. The type of assistance offered, however may include one-off assistance such as:
- food, transport or chemist vouchers
- food parcels or clothing
- referrals to other services that help to address underlying causes of financial crisis.
The Syrian civil war broke out in March 2011 causing families to suffer under the violent conflict that has killed hundreds of thousands of people and torn the nation apart.
Healthcare centres, hospitals, schools, businesses, as well as water and sanitation systems have been damaged or destroyed with historic landmarks also being reduced to rubble.
Millions are now scattered, creating the world’s largest refugee crisis in recent times. About 6.7 million Syrians are now refugees, and another 6.2 million people are displaced and trapped within Syria totalling almost 13 million known cases of displacement, more than half of Australia’s total population with half of the affected being children.
Since December 2019, over 520,000 people have been displaced from their homes, with 80% being women and children. Temperatures below zero and a lack of shelter and warm supplies have forced the people of Idlib to sleep on the cold, icy ground with trees as shelter with nothing to keep them warm.
Babies, children and families have lost their lives due to the bitter cold with the violence forcing around 6,500 children to flee daily, and has left an estimated 1.2 million children in desperate need of food, water and medicine.Once off Donation Monthly Donation
