We are deeply saddened to learn of today's twin attack on the evacuation of Afghan civilians and foreign nationals from Kabul airport. Our hearts go out to everyone affected and to those working around the clock to save lives. We are grateful to Airbnb and others who are working to find accommodation and support for the displaced. Our thoughts are also with those remaining in the country whose dreams hang in the balance.

Progress against malnutrition in Syria: On this special day of the year, we are pleased to share that 3,668 children and women have participated in RPI and Orkide’s program to prevent and treat acute malnutrition in northwest Syria. Led onsite by our refugee-led partner Orkide based out of Turkey, this project trained and deployed community health workers to screen children under 5 and pregnant and lactating women for malnutrition, distributed fortified and therapeutic foods, and counseled caretakers on infant and young child feeding. With the UN reporting an alarming rise in acute malnutrition in the region, we are working to extend this lifesaving program. Syria’s children send you their warmest thanks and Eid greetings!

We are so pleased to report that more and more Syrian refugee children born in Lebanon are receiving their birth certificates thanks to this ongoing project co-designed by RPI and onsite implementing partner URDA. Read URDA's post for details on why these certificates are so important to girls' empowerment.

This project provides refugees with birth certification fee coverage, accompaniment to registration offices, legal counseling and information. We are grateful to Dining for Women and our individual supporters for making this project possible.

Happy New Year! Thanks to you, 2 relief projects for northwest Syria were launched this week with our refugee-led partners in Turkey. Mobile community health workers will screen and treat rising cases of acutely malnourished children and pregnant and lactating women. Community volunteers will deliver eco-friendly fuel for heating and cooking, along with baby diapers, soap, and COVID-19 guidance to 5 urban camps in a hotspot for the virus. We are thrilled to be partnering with you and local partners Orkide and Olive Branch on these projects. Thank you for ringing in the New Year with Refugee Protection International!

Giving Tuesday: Please support us in protecting refugees from COVID-19 and hunger by giving what you can. Supported projects have identified 16% of confirmed COVID-19 cases in northwest Syria through screening and referrals for testing, trained refugees to make soap, and distributed COVID-19 guidance and hygiene kits to thousands in host countries. Hunger is on the rise in Syria’s camps. Chronic malnutrition among under 5-year olds is at its highest level since the war began and 137,000 suffer from acute malnutrition. We know that your communities also suffer. Thank you for any gift you can make. We are so grateful to you and to our refugee-led nonprofit partners on the ground!

We are working hard with our partners to address rising COVID-19 in war-torn northwest Syria. In this project with RPI, refugee-led nonprofit partner SIMRO has done 155,400 screenings for COVID-19 symptoms among patients and visitors at the Internal Medicine Specialty Hospital in Idlib and referred thousands for testing. Overcrowded camps, urban displacement, and poor access to water, soap, and masks place families at high-risk of infection. We are grateful to our supporters who enabled RPI to cover nursing salaries and equipment for socially distanced patient discussions and thermal screening. We know that our supporters also suffer and we wish all a healthy Thanksgiving.
