Over 500 thousand people died since the beginning of the Civil War in Syria, which broke out exactly seven years ago.

"Unfortunately, the situation [here] is still dangerous. After the UN Security Council decided to impose the truce, the situation of the population has improved, but there are still many victims in Damascus. Last week, over 100 bombs hit the city in just two days. We continue to seek peace in the darkness of this war.”

The health sector is among the most damaged. According to data from the 'Save the Children' organization, between July 2017 and January 2018, there were at least 92 attacks on Syrian hospitals, surgeries and ambulances.

In contrast with this reality of pain, the students of the Center of Education of the Parish of Aleppo visited the pediatric oncological ward of the city University hospital.

Many children suffer, because of their illness and also for having lost their family and friends. The visits and demonstrations of affection, despite everything, give them a smile and a hope!
