MISSIONS

During the last four years we have constantly met children who live in very harsh conditions and which get worse year after year.

Our goal is to provide Syrian children with the certainty of having food and water, medical care and shelter from the cold.

We go there personally to distribute food, blankets, clothes and medical care. A doctor always accompanies us.
