Today marked the official opening ceremony of our much anticipated Syrian village for orphans and widows. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by the friendly chants of children happy to see us, some as young as five rushed to hold our hands. We leave behind hundreds of people who will no longer fear the cold of the harsh Syrian winter. Children will not go hungry because the main bread winner of their families have been killed. They now live in a clean environment free from the danger of open sewers, common in many camps and this has been achieved thanks to your constant support and donations. But there is no doubt that more needs to be done, and with your continuous support we can and will insha Allah provide the much needed assistance that these brave and courageous people deserve.
The Syria Refugee Village. The ongoing crisis in Syria has forced many people to leave their homes terrified and desperate for safe refuge from the violence. Along with any remaining family members they have fled to refugee camps along the Syria-Turkey border. The most affected amongst them are orphans and widows. Countless children suffer from the psychological trauma of seeing family members killed, of being separated from their parents and being terrified by the constant thunder of shelling. After multiple visits to the Syrian refugee camps, Al Muntada Trust & Al Khair Foundation, have witnessed the appalling unsanitary conditions, unsafe drinking water and lack of facilities in the camps. The terrible conditions are leading to risk of water-borne diseases including acute respiratory infections, leishmania and skin diseases such as scabies. In addition to this, there are fears of security and privacy for the people, particularly the women and children, leaving them vulnerable and exposed.
Build a Home Today! Al Muntada Trust in partnership with Al Khair Foundation plan to build a village which will have 100 demountable rooms as small center and will include a school, a masjid, a kitchen from where food will be served to people and a playground for the children. Each container will provide shelter for an average of 5 members and will contain mattresses, blankets, pillows, mat, bin, water thermos, table fan, mini refrigerator, portable wardrobe. A communal kitchen will be built that will daily serve cooked food to orphans, their mothers and needy families. We also plan to erect a tent for a school to be used as classroom where children will get education and a masjid where worshippers are able to offer their prayers. The total cost of the project will be £500,000. Each share will be £2500 per person. Participate with us in Constructing a village for Orphans and Widows in Syria and let this be a continuous charity for you. Help Build a Syrian Home Today
