Dorcas expands work in Syria Monday 9 October 2017

Recently, Dorcas received approval to start an office in Syria. The registration was necessary to provide humanitarian aid within the country. Najla Chahda, Dorcas country director in Lebanon says: ‘We hope that we are able to better serve the most vulnerable people in the area this way’.

Before the registration procedure started, we worked through various local partners who were already present in Syria. Now that the registration process has been completed, we are able to expand the work and initiate our own activities. We aim to strengthen understanding between various groups and support integration. We will educate people in the areas of parenting, dealing with conflict and train people to find jobs and keep them.

Our Lebanon office will initiate the work in Syria, starting with the preparation of quality projects and building partnerships with other organisations. ‘We will keep working on sustainable solutions that protect the most vulnerable people’.
