Lighting up the Darkness in Syria: iguacu’s Rigorous Research, Analysis and On- the-Ground Expert Network Empower People to Give Effectively

Go to to Make a Genuine Impact

A grave humanitarian challenge: The current humanitarian situation in Syria is one of the gravest in world. Since civil war broke out in 2011, more than six million people have been internally displaced, nearly two million children are out of school, and two million people are in urgent need of food. In total, more than thirteen million people are in need of aid.

In the face of such devastation, how can those of us who are aching to help out take action and ensure our dollars are reaching those with the greatest need? How can we choose a charity that is able to use our donations impactfully?

The power to give effectively: Enter iguacu (, a unique, groundbreaking nonprofit organization that is empowering the public to give effectively to alleviate human suffering. Analyzing research and intelligence from an expert worldwide network, iguacu’s team identifies charities that are making a genuine impact in regions of the globe that are in crisis, from Syria to South Sudan, and beyond.

What makes iguacu different is the depth and scope of its investigations. iguacu’s expert network comes from academia, international/national/local aid and humanitarian relief organizations, development agencies, economic and/or political institutes, think tanks, governmental bodies, charities, private sector and community associations.

Though often based in difficult, inaccessible regions, working in challenging conditions, these experts take the time to speak with iguacu. iguacu’s careful research and analysis of their input enables them to guide donors with confidence.

How to donate to Syria with impact: iguacu recommends donations to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), which has the widest reach in Syria and has been helping to address people’s humanitarian needs including food, health and more.
