The War in Syria

Dans: Nos articles

The war has seen many developments over the years. Some dates were important, such as the liberation of Aleppo, which was an important strategic point due to its history as the economic capital of Syria. Known in particular for its multi-millennial soap factories and fabric factories, the time is now ripe for reconstruction.

Syria is experiencing a revolt in early 2011 that is rapidly degenerating into war with the takeover of a large part of Syria by Daech and Al-Nostra. This war had serious consequences for the Syrian population. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of people have been deported. Villages and even large cities like Aleppo or Homs have been largely destroyed. The country's economy has been slowing down for almost 8 years, so the cost of living has risen considerably.

The reasons for this conflict can be multiple and at the same time elusive. Some see them as economic interests, others as geopolitical interests and even as internal political reasons. When we go out in the field, one thing is certain: things are not black or white but sometimes much more complex than we can imagine from afar.
The war has seen many developments over the years. Some dates were important, such as the liberation of Aleppo, which was an important strategic point due to its history as the economic capital of Syria. Known in particular for its multi-millennial soap factories and fabric factories, the time is now ripe for reconstruction.

In addition to the significant human losses caused by war, there are sometimes invisible consequences that are much more serious. Families torn apart, separated by the exodus, friendships broken, houses destroyed, jobs lost, great insecurity, and the list goes on. All Christian or Muslim communities have been touched in the heart and the harmony that once prevailed is weakened.

Since the liberation of Aleppo, the situation in Syria has improved. Large parts of the territories have been liberated and the time for reconstruction has come. The economy must gradually recover, but the damage has been so severe that it will take several years.
Christian communities in particular have been very weakened by the war and many families have left. Those who have remained often need support to keep them from feeling abandoned and to keep hope alive.

Thus, broken by the conflict, Syria must find its people, its families, strengthen its origins, protect its wealth, and rebuild its cities. Still fragile, this country has a long way to go to rebuild, nothing will be as it was before, but a better future awaits this people. Let us stay close to them, let us help them in our own way, in our own way.
