Marwan (52) is a farmer from Rural Damascus and one of 434 farmers in Syria who have benefitted from our seed distribution response to help them continue to make a living and keep their land. Marwan, who lost his home in the ongoing conflict, has to rent an apartment for his family – an additional cost in a country where food prices have skyrocketed.


In 2020, your support enabled us to reach more than one million people across Rural Damascus, Dar’a and Aleppo with emergency food, clean water, cash transfers, winter kits and farming tools.
