SI has been working in Syria since 2012 and currently has strong coverage for WASH, FSL and NFI programs across North West (NWS) and North East Syria (NES).

NWS programs are remotely managed and provide WASH and NFI/Winterization support to affected populations.

The mission is expanding through a major consortium with 4 partners led by SI, which started in October 2018.
