Five years ago, Um Hasan left her home in Al Hasake but she couldn’t find a work to take care and support her three children and her sick husband.
“I have never settled in a house for more than six months” she told Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers, who were assessing the needs of those families in all Rural Damascus areas in order to help them face the bad situation as they live in unfinished buildings.
In January 2018, SARC teams delivered relief items to the people in need in Sednaya town. The items consisted of 136 mattresses, 5334 blankets, 581 kitchen kits, 703 chargers, 141 plastic linoleum, 220 hygiene kits, 1677 mats and 1188 water gallons.
“Thank God that you come here” with these simple words from Um Hasan, the volunteers continued their work in great passion and dedication.
