What we do

Our Activities

Together, we can make a better impact since our collective voices will ring louder and will reflect the voices of many civilians affected by the conflict in Syria. Our duty is for these voices to reach officials and decision-makers and to reflect our different experiences as organizations as well as our actual interactions with beneficiaries.
