The civil war that has dragged on since 2011 has forced the internal displacement of 6.5 million people. Deprived of their childhood, the youngsters grow up in an environment marked by violence and insecurity. We bring emergency aid to displaced families and create safer surroundings that are better adapted to their needs. In the reception centre run by our partners in south-east Damascus, children can take part in recreational and psychosocial activities.

What we do

Child protection

In Damascus rural government, Tdh collaborates with a local partner to give support to displaced Syrian families and the host community. We organize psychosocial activities and informal education for the youngsters at the centre and we ensure individual monitoring and referral to other institutions in cases where special care is required. We also distribute food, hygiene kits, clothing and medication to the most vulnerable families.

«We have to remind people worldwide that children are the main victims of conflicts and that they need to be considered first and foremost if we want to avoid harsh consequences on the well-being, safety and education of the generations to come.»
