Syria’s ongoing conflict, now in its 5th year, has torn apart countless families. Entire communities have been uprooted, scattering large populations within Syria and driving over 5 million people into surrounding countries.
Children have been particularly affected, many of them becoming refugees, some separated from one or both parents and sometimes with no adult caregiver at all. There are an estimated 600,000 widows and orphans inside Syria with the numbers growing rapidly by the day.
In 2014, One Nation secured a “Widows and Orphans” camp inside Syria where we are helping to support those who have lost their husbands and parents to war. In the harsh difficult winter of 2014, many of the tin roofs of each cabin blew off in the difficult conditions, along with a huge amount of other damage to the camp. Thanks to your donations, the camp was fully repaired. In fact, One Nation carried out a number of improvements to the camp. Partitions were created in each cabin to an additional room, additional water tanks were fitted around the camp, all huts were given access to electricity and the previously muddy ground was filled with gravel, providing a healthier environment for all of our residents.
