Recent statistics of Syrian orphans and families without breadwinners show precarious results of an ongoing humanitarian tragedy. Conflicts and battles have led to a large-scale crisis, which calls for international intervention to save children and orphans from lost, abuse and deteriorating living conditions.
Children are the most afflicted group by the ongoing conflict in Syria. According to UNICEF, Syria is 'among earth's most dangerous places for children.' Whether deliberately targeted or not protected properly, thousands of children lost their lives to violence, and the majority has dropped off schools, sought refuge in other countries, and became breadwinners for their families.
In a recent report by 'Syria Relief,' 5.3 million children need urgent assistance, of them, two million live in hard to reach areas.
Therefore, Beyaz Eller shows particular interest in alleviating the suffering of Syrian children. Our '100 Orphans' Project deals with psychological, medical, and ethical aspects of children life, in addition to providing food, shelter, education and dignity livelihood that help children survive misery in host countries.
