Huda Nassar, our Director for the Middle East, is in Syria right now, leading Little Heroes programmes for hundreds of displaced children across the country. You can read more about this programme here.

Our Little Heroes programme gives displaced children a new hope and a new energy to live their life without fear. This enables them to build new bridges of respect and understanding with children of other faiths that they meet in their new homes and schools. In a very meaningful way, these children have become little Peacemakers.

THANK YOU to all whose generosity has made this programme possible this year.


Huda will be reporting 'live' from Syria as the programme continues, and as she attends further Little Heroes programmes in July and August across Syria.

Update 2

SAFITA - new Little Heroes in Safita!

We are working with over 350 displaced Syrian children in Safita, near the border with Lebanon. The themes for our first two days were "A Little Hero is the hero who prays", and "A Little Hero is the hero who is obedient" and today, our final day, our theme is "Little Heroes are not afraid because 'I can do all things through Him who strengthens me' Philippians 4:13".

Each group of children has developed their own chant, which reflects each day's theme, and we hope that these chants will stay with the children in the future as words of encouragement. Later, the Scouts Band will come for our closing ceremony.Keep us all in your prayers!
