The projects aimed to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people, inside the most affected areas, such as Ghouta, Daraa, Homs and other areas.

These are part of a series of aid projects carried out by KSRelief Center for Syrian people inside and outside their country.

Rabeeah said that they target food security, healthcare and hospital operation, as well as community support in education, protection, agriculture, shelter and improved livelihoods.

The projects will include the inauguration of community centers that provide psycho-social services and vocational rehabilitation for children and women in cooperation with Ihsan for Relief and Development. They will also rehabilitate and support public schools in cooperation with the Bunyan Charity Organization.
