Through our partnership with the Blue Marists of Aleppo, we support youth and families in need in Aleppo, Syria. Our various fundraisers throughout the year help many in need.
They work on improving the situation for Syrians through many different activities, which are divided into three types of programs:
1.) Aid & Relief, such as providing a hot meal with bread and fruit for 150 elderly people living alone, with no family left in Syria and no one to help them.
2.) Educational, such as teaching the skills of sewing to young women, mothers and spouses of the displaced families, to help them find a job or for personal reasons.
3.) Human Development, such as recycling old clothing and remains of fabrics to fashionable pieces that can be sold, providing a job opportunity for the persons in this project while respecting the environment and reducing waste.”
