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.

Planning to bring joy to children in Syria 17 June 2021
Here is an update on the BounceBack4Syria and a reminder that we are still raising funds. Please let your family and friends know that they can make a difference. We are also happy to talk to groups and schools about our work to raise awareness for the ongoing needs of children in conflict zones.
Right now, we are ramping up to make a distribution made possible with your donations. Whilst we are still working towards our target, planning has started for a second distribution. Out team in Syria will soon identify a camp where children are unable to attend school and plan a distribution of activity materials that promote resilience. An addition to the projetct will be to provide some adult support – a bit like a sport coach – to help the children get the most out of the toys we provide. I am looking at the range of materials that we could use and how we can make the second distribution as successful as possible.
We have completed a review of the pilot scheme and were delighted to bring joy to so many children and their families. It not only built resilience but provided an opportunity for these children to spend time experiencing joy and laughter. Many children made new friends and worked with their parents and siblings to master new skills. Malak told us. “I liked the skipping rope very much. I learned it quickly and it makes me jump high in the air”.
Thanks again for you help and support.
