Syria: war not over

In July, Barnabas Fund highlighted the situation in Aleppo, Syria, after receiving a letter from one of its Project Partners there.

The letter said: ‘A lot of young people lost their friends, killed during the war or who left the country for good … Several industrialists or small business owners are looking for workers to revive their projects and they are confronted with the lack of skilled manpower … The high cost of living, the rising prices and the decline in purchasing power mean that [we] continue to support the families through a regular monthly distribution of food and hygiene baskets … many voices are calling for the distribution of food baskets to stop, to force people to normalise their lives. But we realise that the misery is greater and the basic needs are immense’.
