SOS Syrian Children was founded in 2013 by Suzy and Hamid. Both are living in Antwerp, Belgium and both are carrying Syria in their hearts.  Because of their continuous enthusiasm and perseverance the couple  succeeded  in  convincing more and more people in and outside Belgium to commit themselves for the Syrian children particularly from Aleppo. At present the organisation consists of  10 volunteers. Most are having their own jobs but ready to dedicate a part of their spare time to the cause of the Syrian children.

"In 2012 I realized the conflict was growing worse and worse in 2011. I realized I had to do something for the children . I had 
always received so  much hospitality from everyone, and especially the children had stolen my heart. Irresistible with their 
sparkling eyes and charming smiles, wishing me welcome when I met them on the street .

I felt strongly that I had to  ease their pain and to give them back their smiles in these difficult moments. The idea grew. I started collecting clothes and toys."

Hamid

"I am Syrian and I am living in Belgium for quite a long time.  I carry Syria in my heart and I cry when I see the horrible things that happen to my people. I feel I have to help them. I want to ... because I don't want them to be a lost generation. They have to feel there are still people who care about them.

In 2013 I started  a simple clothing collection that soon got out of hand.

 Wonderful to see  how family, friends, school, community  were getting  involved kinderen in the project. The feeling I really could make a difference even with a simple gesture was amazing.

Right now I cannot do without SOS Syrian Children anymore. Partly because I realize how important it is for very young people to grow up in  a stable, loving environment.  But I also try to  imagine  how it would be  if such a tragedy would happen  in my own  country. Wouldn't I long for some help?"

" Heartbreaking to think of all the Syrian children with  physical and mental trauma   in and outside Syria.

 Their suffering upsets  me even more knowing  their great distress while there is such little support from the international community. I decided not to remain passive and to commit myself to humanitarian aid for Syrian children. How vulnerable or hurt they are, they carry the future of Syria in themselves!"
