10 years of humanitarian crisis and conflict has had a devastating impact on the situation of children in Syria. The biggest victims of this conflict have been the mass population of orphaned children who are desperately in need of help. Without support, children are vulnerable to exploitation such as child labour, early marriage and other damaging activities.
As well as our sponsorship programme, we support numerous child-friendly spaces across Syria which provide safe areas for children to play, sing and make friends. A variety of recreational and educational activities are held at these centres, that aim to protect children from harm whilst restoring something close to normality in their lives.
Our psychologists enable children to communicate their trauma and express their feelings through a range of child-counselling techniques, including arts and crafts, singing and dancing, and storytelling therapies. Children and their caregivers can also receive psychosocial support at the centres to help them overcome the trauma they have experienced.
