In the Franciscan Care Center, a Therapeutic Art project is being promoted. It is to help children who have been victims of the war in Syria overcome the traumas of this conflict.
The Franciscan convent in the city of Aleppo is open to the whole Christian community. There are more than two thousand people already participating and hundreds more waiting to do so.
The reason for this project is to be close to those who suffer, without raising reasons for it. Following the proverb that says “Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle.”
