End of TSF activities in Aleppo

We have all seen the images in the media. The death toll is rising in Aleppo as the days go by, whilst those who do manage to survive incessant bombing fight to flee the city.

In Syria since 2012, TSF connections in Aleppo have also fallen victim to the air strikes - the three connections initially set up for medical assistance in the city have been destroyed by bombs over the past few months.

Despite the gravity of the situation in Syria, TSF maintains its work in the north-west of the country where 15 connections remain in place, providing vital support to the medical sector.

The education centres put in place by TSF in Azaz, Al Salama and Gaziantep (Turkey) also remain in service, with over 1,800 Syrian displaced and refugee children benefiting from educational and recreational activities each month.
