EMERGENCY AID AND SUPPORT TO THE EDUCATION OF THE SYRIAN CHILDREN DURING THE WAR
We have been supporting for the last three years the children victim of the war in this country by distributing emergency aid on the whole of the Syrian territory. Our aid is handed out in Damascus, by our local partner head of the Lazarist school, expanding towards the war displaced children of Lattaquié, Homs, Idlieb, Aleppo…) regardless of confession.
In 2017, we created 4 educational centres in Latakia (2 centres), Homs and Kashkul (in the suburbs of Damascus). These centres provide school support and upgrade of 1.200 children, mostly displaced from the city of Raqqa, Idleb… The return to liberated areas not being relevant, we will continue our support in 2018, until August. Then we will see how to articulate our support for the return. Displaced families have lost everything in their flight. The goal will be to rebuild homes and schools, as soon as possible.
Similarly, we will continue our training sessions on Syrian patrimony, provided by a Lebanese historian/archaeologist, in the school of the Lazarists of Damascus so that 300 students of Damascus, who have not been able to leave their city in 6 years, can know and appreciate their own culture and restore the pride of their origins. This operation, started in 2017, has been extremely successful for young students who appreciate this openness to their own world given by an external speaker.

Support the children and train Syrian youth.
