Paris, France- A humanitarian crisis is unfolding in Daraa, Syria as around 55,000 civilians – 10,000 families are under siege with little to no access to food, medical care, medicine, or basic human needs. The city of Daraa has been under siege since June 24, 2021. The humanitarian situation is deteriorating rapidly. Many families are risking their lives fleeing to nearby areas in search of a safe haven for their families, while thousands of families remain in a dangerous situation besieged and under attacks.
UOSSM is responding to the catastrophic situation in Daraa by providing immediate medical relief and food essentials to besieged and displaced families in need.

We urge the international community to take immediate action to lift the siege on the people of Daraa, cease all military action against innocent civilians, and provide safe and secure access for medical relief and humanitarian aid. The international community must act now, thousands of lives are at risk if no immediate action is taken.”
