Hand In Hand for Syria is one of the few organisations that directly provides aid on the ground in Syria. It was set up very soon after the conflict began which was in 2011, and therefore was the organisation to take humanitarian aid into Syria.
It is one of my favourites organisations because according to the website:
- Unlike most aid agencies which can’t operate in Syria because of political or security restrictions, Hand In Hand for Syria can.
- They get into the “hard-to-reach areas”.
- They rarely take any admin costs.
- They deliver a wide range of aid – food, medical aid, educational materials, water, sanitation and hygiene programmes, etc.
