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 the last six years, thousands who’s villages have been destroyed by the war are living in the slums of Damascus, unemployed, receiving very limited food supplies. These families have lost everything and are even too poor to even consider leaving Syria. Damascus has gone from 4 to 8 million inhabitants. The population, although regularly supplied in water and electricity do not have access to trade any more and shells are exchanged regularly between rebels and the regular army, implying their lot of “collateral damages”…
In this context, we are supporting 3 educational centres in Lattaquié, Homs and Damascus, in order to reinforce the school level of the displaced children. We have also opened a section within the Lazarist school in Damascus, for Syrian patrimony training, provided by our Lebanese coordinator, so that the pupils in Damascus, who have not left their town for 6 years, may know about their own culture.
Aim of project
Support the children and train Syrian youth.
