Education is one of the sectors worst affected by the Syrian crisis. In many areas, children attend lessons in damaged school buildings. Health problems arise during the cold winter months, as the lack of windows and doors in these schools make it a harsh and unhealthy learning environment for students.
Throughout the month of February, Mercy Without Limits continues to distribute 500 diesel heaters and 40,000 liters of diesel to 51 schools in Arfin District; benefiting more than 18,000 Syrians. In addition, safety and security kits were distributed which included 2 fire extinguishers, one whistle, and one flashlight.
As part of these efforts, Mercy Without Limits rehabilitated 9 schools. The rehabilitation process included fixing all the damaged items including windows, doors, painting the walls and creating separate bathrooms.
In coordination with the Education Directorate, we were able to supply schools with furniture including student desks, teacher desks, teacher chairs, whiteboards, and other educational equipment.
The project will restore the educational process and contribute effectively to the revival of the education system in the area.
With your help, we can continue to help even more schools and students that strengthen the families and communities. Here’s how:
