“I was seriously injured during an air attack - both my arms had to be amputated. Since then I have hardly been able to provide for my family“, explains Obeida Yousef. He is sitting with his young son in a vegetable garden in Idlib, where his family now lives. Obeida Yousef used to work as a farmer in the rural area of Aleppo, until the war in Syria turned the 40-year-old’s life upside down. The air attack destroyed his house, and the family had to move to another part of the country.

Assistance for Idlib and Aleppo

Welthungerhilfe and its local partner organisation IhsanRD provide support for the difficult task of starting again. “We get vouchers. That really helps to feed my family. However, I am scared about the future. I really hope that the war will end soon.”

Millions of Syrians have had to leave their homeland, their houses and their jobs behind; many of them have also lost loved ones. The only option is to flee into the unknown. In the Syrian regions of Idlib and Aleppo, Welthungerhilfe and its partner organisations, People in Need and IhsanRD, identify the refugees that are particularly dependent on assistance. They receive vouchers for food, seeds and garden tools or aid parcels, including items like rice, lentils, oil and chick peas, or hygiene products. 

Refugees tell their stories

Welthungerhilfe has been active in Syria since 2012, helping people survive and supporting them in their difficult situations.
