More than 70 persons have died after an apparent chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib Province, Syria, on April 4, 2017. Another 100 are in hospitals receiving treatment for injuries suffered in the bombing, and the number of other injured may exceed 400.
The following nonprofits are helping survivors of the attack; we’ve linked to statements on their respective websites about their responses:
- Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières
- Mercy Corps
- Save the Children
- Syrian American Medical Society
For a list of other organizations providing aid to people affected by Syria’s six-year civil war, see the page we published several months ago on the refugee crisis the war has engendered.
