In the tenth year of the Syrian crisis, the humanitarian situation in many regions remains poor. Both IDPs and host communities lack basic necessities such as food, clean water and health care.
Tens of thousands of families live in ruined buildings, empty schools and shops, or sleep outdoors in public places and parks. They have no access to aid and are without protection. The need for income opportunities is also particularly high. Together with our partners, we have been active in Syria for years, helping the people and providing urgently needed humanitarian aid.
To give refugees a chance getting some kind of normality in their lives we are offering sewing courses. With this new skills they can ean some money to buy urgent needed items.
In times of corona all sewing machines are disinfected twice a day, and the participants' fever is measured before the course begins. The women receive face masks and disposable gloves. The Syrian Day Centre, where the courses take place, is also cleaned and disinfected every day. So the sewing courses can continue and winter clothing for children and adults can continue to be produced. Together with trained seamstresses, displaced women sew winter clothing such as trousers, skirts and jackets as part of the Cash for Work program. A total of 3,500 sets of adult clothing and 10,000 sets of children's clothing can then be distributed.
Please stay with us and give the refugee families in this area a strong support.
Thank you so much
