Orphans of Freedom - Syria
Background and Statement of Need
In March 2011, and fueled in part by the Arab Spring, the Syrian Revolution began. The LocalCoordination Committees in Syria (LCC) was formed to align the activities of activists and other pro-
democracy Syrians in each of the country’s 14 governorates. As the Syrian Revolution has continued,and as the Assad regime’s response has escalated, the LCC has become known worldwide as the
voice of the people in Syria through its work in organizing civil disobedience, ensuring widedissemination of news, documenting human rights violations, and distributing much-needed relief across the country. Today, the LCC plays an important role in documenting needs across Syria. We areinstrumental in developing networks of activists who can, despite the inherent dangers, deliver relief supplies to those most in need.Current LCC humanitarian relief efforts include:
Distributing food baskets
Obtaining and distributing medical supplies and equipment 
Supporting disaster-stricken familiesAn area of particularly critical need is that of Syrian orphans
children whose parents were killed byregime authorities and who are living in a state of trauma. Many are destitute; some have beenadopted by families that have been equally devastated; and still others are left to their own devices.Supporting these orphans is critical in order to prevent long-term psychological issues, childprostitution, or other forms of child abuse. Of particular note is the fact that many Syrian orphanshave not been able to attend school for several months now, due to the prevalence of snipers, tanks,and troops in residential areas.To date, we have gathered data on orphans and children of prisoners in multiple Syrian governorates.
The LCC proposes to support orphans in Syria by continuing its
of Freedom
” campaign,
which is being widely disseminated to Syrian communities both in Syria and abroad. By using aflexible strategy, the LCC believes that we can positively impact a maximum number of Syrianchildren. We propose to implement this project throughout Syria. To date, the LCC has conductedextensive needs assessments in Daraa, Hama, Idlib, Damascus, and the Damascus Suburbs (Rif Dimashq). From our experience in these Syrian Governorates, we will apply any lessons learned tothe project and work in the remaining areas of Syria.To ensure care planning, implementation, and follow-up, the LCC has developed the methodology,depicted in
Figure 1
, to guide our efforts in
the “Orphans
of Freedom
” project

Figure 1: Implementation Methodology
of Freedom
The LCC would undertake these activities by leveraging our internal network of activists who are ableto travel in Syria and who can conduct site visits to ensure that funds and other donations are hand-delivered to those most in need.. In addition, our traveling teams can develop key success factors forthe overall project and will maintain regular communications with the LCC organization to providestatus updates and communicate about any issues.Thus far, the LCC has identified 23 children in Daeel, Daraa
as candidates for the “Orphans
of Freedom
” project.
For additional information, including key statistics, please see
