Syrian children are faced with obstacles they must overcome just in order to receive an education. Whether they be economic hardships, physical ailments, or illness, each challenge has great weight in holding these children back. But these kids aren’t giving up. Their dedication, combined with the efforts by Ishan for Relief and Development, has brought forth amazing changes within displaced communities.
Majeda was once one of 2 million Syrian children not receiving any education. Like many children her age, Majeda dropped out of school to work and support her family. With the help and encouragement of her local education center, Majeda is back in class as one of her school’s hardest-working students. Now with a deep appreciation for her education, Majeda is studying hard to become a teacher. One day, Majeda will pass on the same kindness and devotion she experienced to her own students.
Since the crisis in Syria began, over 2 million houses have been destroyed. Without the necessary resources, 70% of civilians are unable to rebuild their homes. Omar is one of those people. Omar’s situation is unique in that he is a single father to 3 children, each with health issues. Syrian Forum rebuilt a home for Omran and his children, giving them a foundation from which to build the rest of their lives. Through 2020, Syrian Forum has rehabilitated 4,661 houses. We hope to continue our good work moving forward.
Zakaria was born deaf. When Zakaria was young, he would observe his peers talking and laughing and was deeply saddened by his inability to participate. Now, with the help of his hearing aid, Zakaria is learning how to speak verbally and will one day be able to communicate freely with his comrades.
