The conflict in Syria broke out in 2011, fueling the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Half of all Syrians were forced to flee from a brutal civil war. And even as a tenuous peace settles over the country, millions of people still face extreme uncertainties, unsure if and when they’ll be able to return, and how their country will rebuild.
During the height of the crisis, we worked with our partner organization the Syrian Society for Social Development (SSSD) to provide life-saving assistance to Syrians displaced or otherwise affected by the conflict. We built shelters, provided counseling for traumatized families, distributed clothing, and supplies, and connected young people to tutoring and informal education classes, even as schools were destroyed, and lives disrupted.
Today, our partnership with SSSD and our commitment to Syrians continues. We’re helping communities rebuild, when possible, despite the uncertainties ahead. Access to resources is an ongoing challenge for many families, so we’re working on Health Points that offer primary preventative and curative health services to all ages. At this moment of transition for Syria and Syrians, it’s critical that we see our support through, walking alongside those whose futures still hang in the balance.
