Opening of a Psycosocial Support and Vocational Training center in Idlib – Syria

Ashraful Aid is pleased to announce the opening of a Psychosocial Support and Vocational Training Centre for refugees in Syria. The centre will focus on providing support and trauma counselling for the children affected by the crisis and suffering in its aftermath. The vocational training branch of the centre will focus on empowering women who have been widowed as a result of the war, and will teach them valuable skills which will allow them to support themselves and their families.

As the civil war in Syria enters its tenth year, so does the humanitarian crisis which plagues the Middle Eastern country. Along with death and destruction, the war has given rise to widespread trauma, specifically amongst children, and has resulted in the creation of many widows. Without networks or support structures of any sort, refugee children and widows are two of the most vulnerable groups affected by the strife and conflict.

Many NGOs in Syria focus on problems at hand, such as providing those affected by the war with food, water, and medical supplies. While the provision of these essentials is incredibly important, the aftermath of the crisis is often ignored, and, many a times, the long-term effects that the war may have on civilians are neglected.

Approximately 2.6 million children have been displaced over the course of the war, and this undoubtedly has terminal psychological effects, which, if untreated, will severely affect these children for the rest of their lives. Hundreds of thousands of women have been widowed, and are left to fend for themselves, and even for their children, after having lost their husbands; many of whom were typically the breadwinners in the family.

Make the most of this opportunity and let your donation last a lifetime with Ashraful Aid.
