Syria: witnessing the hope and resilience of Syrians
Beirut, 13 February 2013 – Working entirely with Syrians, Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) relies on local networks of volunteers who give much of their time, energy and skills to assist with our efforts within Syria's borders. Hailing from all walks of life, with different ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds, these volunteers are focused on the goal of assisting and serving people severely affected by the conflict. Note: Since the making of this video, the number of Syrians in need of assistance has increased to 2.5 million internally displaced persons and 4 million in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
