What is Soup for Syria

Interlink Publishing, a Massachusetts-based independent publishing house, has collaborated with bestselling cookbook author, photographer, and food writer Barbara Abdeni Massaad (Man'oushe: Inside the Lebanese Street Corner Bakery)—together with nearly 80 acclaimed chefs—on a humanitarian cookbook project whose profits will be donated to the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR to provide urgently needed food relief for Syrian refugees.

The Syrian conflict—now in its 5th year—
is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time.

There are over 4 million Syrian refugees in five countries:

  • Turkey 1,622,839
  • Lebanon 1,174,313
  • Jordan 623,241
  • Iraq 242,468
  • Egypt 136,661

Source: UNHCR as of February 23, 2015.

Nearly 8 million Syrians are internally displaced.

Thousands of Syrians continue to flee their country every day.

Half of all Syrian refugees are under the age of 18. Most have been out of school for many months.

More than half of Syria's pre-war population of 23 million is in desperate need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
