The Syrian conflict, now in its 7th year has torn countless families apart. Entire communities have been uprooted, scattering 6.2 million people within Syria, over 5.6 million are refugees in surrounding countries.

Children have been particularly affected, many of them orphaned, a large number separated from one or both parents, some without an adult to look after them. An estimated 600,000 widows and orphans are inside Syria with numbers growing.

In 2014, One Nation procured a “Widows and Orphans” camp in Syria, where we are supporting those who have lost their husbands and parents. In a harsh winter of 2014, tin roofs were blown off make shift cabins, the camp suffered a huge amount of damage. With your donations, One Nation fully repaired the camp and carried out extensive improvements. Partitioning cabins to create additional rooms, water tanks were fitted around the camp, cabins were given access to electricity and the muddy ground was filled with gravel, creating a healthier environment for all the residents.

This is example of the difference your donations can make.

Please continue to help the Widows and Orphans.
