Humanitarian aid in insecure times

Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe

The Syrian war is in its eleventh year. Living conditions remain catastrophic. According to the UN, 6.7 million people are displaced within the country. The humanitarian situation in Syria continued to deteriorate in 2021. 13.4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. This represents an increase of more than 2 million people in need of assistance (up 21%) compared to the previous year.

What we do
By creating income opportunities, the project makes an important contribution to food security. People without vocational training are trained as seamstresses for eight months in a sewing center. In the first six months, they learn various patterns and sewing techniques, and in two additional months, they are trained in important professional and business skills. Winter jackets, face masks and  sets of children's clothes are sewn and distributed to children and adults in camps or collective shelters. Subsequently, beneficiaries will receive startup kits to either start their own business or equip their workplace in an existing textile factory. The beneficiaries are able to build a new livelihood with the training they receive, while at the same time the clothing produced supports winter relief efforts for children in need.

Complementing this, the project promotes a community center and creates more protection for people with special needs through community-based approaches. In addition to awareness-raising educational sessions, psychosocial assistance is also provided. For example, group sessions and individual sessions on psychosocial help are offered. More than 1,800 children can be cared for at the community center during the project period and sensitized to important topics such as hygiene, non-violent problem solving in a child-friendly manner or receive psychosocial support. The community center's services also include a mobile team that reaches out to other needy people in very remote areas.

Please stay strong and continue to support us in these uncertain times.
