Development Cooperation in Syria
Norwegian People's Aid works in Syria in cooperation with local partners who provide humanitarian aid inside the country. We also work together with Syrian civil society organisations.
Norwegian People’s Aid has a long-established presence in the region with development programs in Lebanon and Iraq and a mine-clearance program in Jordan. We have worked with the conflict in Syria since 2012. We are currently engaged in both humanitarian aid in collaboration with our partners and in ongoing cooperation with civil society organizations. We provide both food distribution, cash transfers and livelihoods support and support to protection activities.
In Lebanon, we assist refugees from Syria, focusing on Palestinian and Syrian refugees who have sought refuge in the Palestinian refugee camps there and on Syrian refugees in the Bekaa Valley. We have provided food, toiletries, clothes and equipment for the winter.
Training programs for people active in Syrian civil society have been organized in collaboration with our partners, providing courses on subjects to do with human rights and democracy, organizational development and mobilization of local communities.
