In North-West Syria the worst humanitarian crisis of our century is happening right now. For many years, the Idlib region has been the scene of bombing, war and clashes. The number of killed and displaced people increases every day.
565 refugee camps
840.000 displaced people
During the Covid-19 pandemic, 56% of displaced people in Al Dana have no access to water or sanitation.
40 kilometres north of Idlib in Al Dana, we’re opening Ma’an - together in arabic - a school for children aged 10 to 14. We welcome both internally displaced children, Syrians who have left their cities to escape bombing, and local disadvantaged children, coming from the local community who have suffered through 9 years of war.
At Ma’an we will teach English, Arabic and maths, distribute food packs and open a safe place in the city where our students can be kids again.
Kids with their rights, their dreams and the opportunity to grow as peace builders and become the change in the world.
