The Syrian conflict began in March 2011 within the context of the Arab Spring protests, breaking out in a violent civil war between the president Bashar al-Assad forces and the Free Syrian Army together with the Syrian National Coalition.
Today it’s still impossible to define the number of victims. Despite persistent international diplomats’ mediations, Syria is currently an impenetrable territory.
Time4Life International is currently involved in Kilis, the Turkish territory near the Syrian border. It’s in here that all the war refugees merge. Kilis has increased its population tenfold since the war began, hosting refugees in every available space: garages, basements, tents, abandoned buildings.
Time4Life International operates here since the beginning of the conflict to support children and families fleeing from war.
