Assistance in reconstruction in Syria

There seems to be no end to the war in Syria. According to United Nations estimates, there are more than 13 million people in Syria that need humanitarian assistance. The victims are predominantly the most vulnerable in the population: children, women, pregnant women, and the elderly. Approximately 45 percent of Syrians (6 million people) have been displaced from their homes, and about 5.6 million of these have fled to foreign countries; the remainder are forced to survive in other regions of the country. Tearfund Germany tries to help those without a home to establish a new one.

Many cities in Syria are scenes of vast destruction – the pictures remind one of Germany after the Second World War. Tearfund Germany is one of the few international aid organizations that are registered in Syria and able to carry out relief projects. Our emphasis is on supporting families, primarily through the reconstruction of housing.

Implementation

Since 2015, we have worked jointly with local Christian churches. Initially, we provided aid during the cold of winter; and in this way, helping many hundreds of people with basic needs such as medical assistance, hygiene products, and clothing. In the unstable north of the country, we have given support to students in need of financial aid so that they did not have to interrupt their vocational training or other studies. Since 2018, we have helped families in the devastated parts of Syria to rebuild their homes and other buildings. At times, it has required as little as 1,900 Euros to make their houses and apartments habitable again.

Thanks to your donations and prayer Tearfund Germany can support these men, women, and children affected by this tragedy so that they are able to rebuild their lives, both within Syria and in those neighboring countries where they have fled.

The war has destroyed much of Syria we want to help with rehabilitation

Syria is a country in Western Asia, bordering Lebanon and the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Turkey to the north, Israel to the southwest, Iraq to the east and Jordan to the south. Damascus is Syria’s capital and largest city. A country of fertile plains, high mountains, and deserts, Syria is home to diverse ethnic and religious groups, but Sunni make up the largest religious group in Syria.
