We are helping in Syria-please support us

Children in Syria

We thank you so much for your previous support. With your donations we can give out food vouchers via our partners and other urgent help:
Orthodox Christian Charities internationally (IOCC) provide for over 10 years emergency aid for refugees, internally displaced and vulnerable populations in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. IOCC has long established relationships with the governments of the two host countries. Multilateral donors such as UNICEF and OCHA and other international donors such as ACT Alliance, in whose network IOCC itself is a member, promoted several utilities of IOCC.
The aid provided by the partner organizations in Syria are focused on the most devastated areas such as Homs, Damascus, Aleppo or Hassakeh. Where assistance can be exactly made depends on the current security situation.

Due to the increased dominance of the IS-militia, the local partner organizations can’t currently work in Idlib, Rakka or Deit az-Zor.

In implementing the projects, the precise local knowledge is necessary. Since both partners already have very close contact with the local communities while working, they know exactly where and when they can move safely.
The partner organizations register needy families and provide them with food, hygiene parcels, clothes, blankets and kitchenware to make everyday life easier. There, where it’s possible children are getting support for school fees, teaching materials, school uniforms, teaching materials and transportation. In addition, some families receive support to rent flats for a limited period. To avoid health risks, the partner organization clarify also about dangers of gastrointestinal infections and distributed water filters. All products are sourced locally.

With so-called "cash-for-work activities" Syrians receive also temporarily a new source of income. Women in particular are taken into work. They sewed for example last year warm clothes for toddlers and school uniforms.
This is a beginning. More is to do. We are happy, when you support us furthermore.
