The Syrian Society for Social Development (SSSD) continues to intervene at the Adra al-Balad temporary shelters that had been specially fitted out to accommodate IDPs from East Ghouta.

Evenings in Ramadan have a sweetness of their own and words have a special perfume. As we, in SSSD, believe that a perfumed word can unfold a smile in a soul, and based on SSSD’s basic role in psychosocial support, the SSSD team, in cooperation with UNHCR, organized gatherings on May 18 and 25 and June 1 under the title Ramadan Tales

Because the children with special needs and the drop out children are among the basic groups targeted by SSSD through its various programs, the team of SSSD in Masyaf, in cooperation with the UNHCR, organized a CBI in Masyaf entitled "Children's bags for daily activities and uses"

Out of believing in the importance of carrying out awareness campaigns on the dangers of harassment, the Syrian Society for Social Development, in cooperation with the UNHCR in Gaza Elementary School in Al Sakhour district of Aleppo, organized the "How to Protect Myself" event from 9 to 12 May.

Jaramana District, Rural Damascus

Since humanitarian action stems from and expresses the core of Humanity, SSSD Hasakeh, in cooperation with UNHCR Syria, has organized an awareness-raising recreational day to celebrate the International Humanitarian Day (29/08).

While monitoring the local community at al-Zahira district, we met Mrs. Samar al-Sayeq, 53, displaced from the Yarmouk Refugee Camp. Samar’s family consists of a husband who is ill (lumbar disc herniation) and unable to work, a sick son and his wife, and a repudiated daughter. All of them live together and have no source of income but selling bread in the street.

Mrs. Tharaa (who hates to be called by that name) is 38 and comes from the city of Qamishli, Governorate of Hasakeh. The story began when Tharaa was introduced to al-Salam Community Center by one of the beneficiaries in the Women’s Committees, who felt that it was necessary to help that woman ease the tension and relieve the terrible pressures she was experiencing.
Hayat, 39, is married, with five children. Her husband is a professional carpenter, a family trade he inherited from his father. He used to own a large carpentry workshop equipped with all the necessary tools but lost all his productive assets due to the Syrian conflict and the precipitous displacement from Saqba, where his trade was established.
