The past few months have been a whirlwind, to say the least. We saw the onset of a pandemic that resulted in quarantines internationally and left vulnerable people more vulnerable than ever before; the expanded impact of famine in Yemen, where people regularly struggle to find food on a regular basis; and then the Beirut explosion caused even more despair in Lebanon, leaving many homeless and many more refugees displaced yet again.
In Syria, NuDay has been working to mitigate social distancing measures since April. NuDay's in-person programming was scaled down to ensure that participants minimized possible spreading. For our education programming, this meant that smaller class sizes were initially utilized. This fall, however, numbers of COVID cases rose. As a result, education activities have been limited to home teaching. Students are provided with school supplies and text books, and are visited on a regular basis by staff to ensure that they understand the material and continue to progress.
Even with the virus, we will not put education on the backburner.
Thank you for your ongoing support in this tough time.
