By distributing sports equipment and play items, ReliefAid is building children’s resilience for a better future.
ReliefAid is a Kiwi humanitarian organisation dedicated to providing life saving and life changing supplies to children in refugee camps in northern Syria.
We are driven to improve children’s wellbeing and boost their resilience through game-playing and sports activities, which build resilience and provide crucial opportunities for social, physical and emotional development.
We have the expertise and experience needed to provide humanitarian assistance, having been doing so in Syria since 2015.
Thanks to generous Kiwi donors, ReliefAid is saving lives and supporting families caught up in armed conflict and natural disasters.
It's too hot to deliver toys in Syria - we are on track for September 26 August 2021
It's been a while since I posted an update, and you may be wondering what is happening. Well, a lot of work has been going on to get ready for this next delivery. As you will know we were planning to engage an Education Worker to extend the use of the equipment we are arranging for the children in a camp. We are really pleased to tell you that your generosity will allow us to have two people, a man and a woman, working with the children to build resilience. We are currently recruiting, and I have been busy preparing a handbook for them to use.
We have also added to the list of activities we provided last time and have added a small whiteboard and pen, as well as a tennis ball to the kit with the skipping rope, sensory ball, soccer ball and hula hoop. These new additions will be able to be used inside the tent so providing more opportunity for spending productive time.
Now we are waiting for the weather – it isn’t rain, or cold that is the problem, it is the heat. Most days the temperature is around 40 degrees, way too hot for children to be outside playing. So, the plan is to distribute in September when it should start to cool down a little.
I’m looking forward to sending you some photos of happy children very soon.
