Earthquake in Syria -Help Children Have Safe School Access Again

Let’s Make Schools Safe Again, No Lost Generation in Syria.

The ongoing war and displacement and the recent devastating earthquake have dramatically exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in Syria.  This earthquake has not only caused displacement of millions of children and their families, but also destroyed already fragile infrastructure, including schools and hospitals.

On 06.02.2023, a very violent earthquake also caused great damage in northern Syria. Many buildings in the area were damaged or destroyed, including many school buildings. In the region of Kobane, Aleppo alone, about 20 schools were affected by the earthquake.

We have received a list of needs from the local authorities for the repair of the earthquake damage, which shows that there is an urgent need for the rehabilitation of school buildings, so children can have safe access to their schools again.
