OUR GOALS

Offering hope and perspectives

Due to the war in Syria, over 12 million people are on the run. They have lost everything and are struggling for bare survival. Some have already left the country,but the majority of them are currently still there and hanging on. We want to help the local people, so that they do not have to leave their country to embark on an uncertain odyssey towards Europe. Let’s give them hope, a perspective for the future and the strength to stay in their country to rebuild it after the war.

Our work

On the one hand, we carry out public relations work to inform the world public about the humanitarian catastrophe in the war zones. In this way, we hope to create awareness of the problem and to gain financial support for our work.

On the other hand, we initiate emergency aid projects to alleviate the greatest need and develop future projects, which should enable people to live a normal life in their home country again at some point in the future. For this purpose, we have been working for years with various local partners in a spirit of trust and have already successfully implemented numerous projects together. Only in this way is it possible for us to work in areas that other aid organizations cannot reach, but where help is needed precisely for this reason.

ACHIEVING MORE TOGETHER

We rely on trusting cooperation

For years, we have been working together with various local partners in a spirit of trust and have already successfully initiated numerous projects together. Only in this way is it possible for us to work in areas that other aid organizations cannot reach, but where help is so necessary for precisely this reason.
