Give a Syrian child like Fatima something to smile about.
Just $25 can provide a bag with enough toys and games for one family to extend play through art, drama, music and sport.
Syrian children don’t have a lot, yet they remain incredibly courageous in the face of horrendous conflict.
“We don’t have toys here, we play with stones.” says Fatima.
You can help Syrian children by making a donation today to provide desperately needed toys and games that will increase their resilience.
March 2021 marks 10 years since the conflict in Syria began. For many children, the only life they’ve ever known is a country at war.
For kids, ReliefAid knows that being able to play and enjoy games fosters their all-important social, physical and emotional development. And after our first delivery of toys and games in February, children like Fatima have been enjoying the challenge of learning new skills and having fun playing again.
Fatima was only three-years-old when the Syrian conflict began. Now 13, she still misses the toys she had to leave behind when she fled home with her family. On the day ReliefAid delivered the toys, Fatima was so excited she could hardly sit still.
“I felt so happy when we got them and I tried to put the hula hoop on my waist and make it turn without falling to the ground.”

ReliefAid has reached kids in 50 Syrian families, including Fatima’s, already – but with 500 families relying on us for help, we need your support.
Just $25 can provide a bag with enough toys and games for one family. Each bag contains a skipping rope, football, hula hoop and ideas to extend play through art, drama, music and sport.
Together we can change these children’s lives through play.
