Norwegian People's Aid support Syrian civil society actors’ engagement in local peace, dialogue and reconciliation efforts, and provide humanitarian relief and protection to affected populations.
NPA has been present in Syria since 2012 and developed a solid network of local partners. Together with our local partners we stimulate local food production by providing agricultural and livestock inputs, and distribute food aid or multi-purpose cash assistance when acute crises occur. NPA and partners also contribute to protect women against gender-based violence and abuse, and empower civilians to better portect themselves against the effects of armed conflict through our Conflict Preparedness and Protection (CPP) programme.
In neighboring Lebanon, NPA provides relief to Syrian and Palestinian refugees from Syria and affected host community members.
