Why we're moving

Over the past 10 years, an estimated 6.6 million Syrians have fled to other countries for refuge, while another 6.1 million are displaced inside Syria.

What started as peaceful anti-government protests on 15th March 2011 quickly turned into conflict, resulting in a decade of violence, displacement, suffering and loss. 

Mercy Corps has been working to support people affected since the beginning of the conflict by providing emergency assistance to meet basic needs, creating safe spaces for young people and increasing economic opportunities.

Our global teams continue to help hundreds of thousands of people affected by the crisis each month. It is critical that people are equipped with the knowledge and resources they need to  build a strong foundation for their future - building resilience to withstand any future shocks and ensure long term recovery. 

This March, as we reflect on 10 years of conflict in Syria, we also reflect on people’s stories of possibility and hope for the future. That is why we are inviting you to join us in moving for our global communities and moving in solidarity for someone you may never meet.
