“Orphans are the most affected by the domestic war”

IHH Syrian Operations Media Representative Selim Tosun said that despite the war they make great efforts to ensure the future of these orphans. Explaining that these orphans are provided with regular social cash support, Tosun added, “The domestic war that has continued in Syria for the last ten years has left behind many orphaned children. We are continuing our orphan sponsorship system in an attempt of reducing this suffering to a minimal so these children grow up as individuals capable of reconstructing their country. With this system, every month 9.244 Syrian orphans receive social cash support which meets their basic needs.”

Saying that orphans are the most affected by the domestic war in Syria, Tosun continued, “Our orphan sponsorship system is continuing with the contributions of our donors. We ask for the support of those of conscience so that we can care for even more orphans.”
