Syria: Tiny Hearts Orphan Village
In the Syrian conflict, children have been the most vulnerable and worst affected strata. According to the United Nations Syria Crisis Report of June 2016, more than 6 million children have been impacted upon by the war since March 2011.
A Turkish NGO, IHH, who focuses great efforts on orphan-care, has constructed a village to house Syrian Orphans in the city of Reyhanli, along the Turkish Border. This initiative provides them with a safe, healthy and loving environment to ease their pain and meet their physical as well as mental needs. About 50 homes house approximately 1000 Syrian Orphans. Every house is made up of a few rooms, a dining room, study area, laundry, bathrooms and kitchen. Caregivers, who stay in home with the children, are important for gaining the trust of kids again and enhancing their self-esteem together with attending to their needs. In addition to this, the village includes schools as well as sports fields, a masjid and parks for the children.
The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa has sponsored the construction of two fully furnished homes in this village. Alhamdulillah, the construction of the village has now been completed and it was officially inaugurated on 18 May 2017. The orphans are gradually being brought in to start occupying the village and benefit from the amenities prepared for them. There are about 40 Syrian orphan girls residing in these two orphan homes and the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa has undertaken to cover all their expenses for a period of one year which includes food, medical aid, schooling, clothing as well as the salaries of the caregivers and related services they receive.
