Summary

2/3 hours with electricity a day. Public electricity is enough for 4 lightbulbs, or 1 lightbulb and a fridge, to work for, just two hours, usually around midday and midnight. Then lights turn off in Syria and those who cannot afford fuel for power generators live in the dark. Pro Terra Sancta has already assisted around 1.000 families providing the minimum amount of energy to survive, but we are working on a new projects to provide alternative energy to other 3.000 families!

Challenge

After ten years of war 90% of Syrian people live below poverty line. With a high unemployment rate and strong inflation people can barely afford to buy food. In addition the Syrian government can only assure 2/3 hours of electricity a day and those who cannot buy fuel for power generators live in the dark. For this reason School was interrupted a month in advance, because remote lessons due to COVID-19 emergency could not continue.

Solution

Alongside with the distribution of food and primary goods, Pro Terra Sancta has already supported 1.000 families by providing power generators and by covering the cost of fuel to allow families to survive. 3.000 more need our support. For this reason we are working on a project to develop a alternative energy and provide a long-term solution to the power crisis.

Long-Term Impact

Pro Terra Sancta needs funds to provide a long-term solution to the power emergency by developing a project of alternative energy in Syria.
