What We Do

Whilst political overtures suggest that the civil war is favouring one side now, the conflict is soon to enter its seventh dismal year, and still well over half of Syria’s population (of 22 million) remain displaced; in dire need of support for basic essentials

SKT Welfare remains committed to delivering such aid both within Syria as well as within refugee camps in Turkey and Jordan, for what still constitutes the world’s largest humanitarian crisis of this decade.

AL-HUDA BAKERY

SKT Welfare established its bakery in Idlib, Syria in January of 2014

The charity supplies flour, yeast, salt, and fuel obtained through its supply channels, as well as maintenance and employee salaries needed to operate the bakery. One tonne of flour produces 1000 packages of bread, and each package of bread can suffice the average Syrian family for one meal. The bakery distributes bread to hundreds of families within 7 local refugee camps daily, benefitting on average 10,500 people per day.

To date, the bakery has benefitted an incredible 7.2 million individuals. With fresh bread being so fundamental to Syrian family life, this bakery is not only providing bread; it is providing one small anchor point to a semblance of normality.

AL-HUDA HOSPITAL

Al-Huda General Hospital was built and funded solely by SKT Welfare, located in Northern Syria near Aleppo; headed by a dedicated team of surgeons.

It comprises of an Emergency Room which can deal with minor surgical procedure, a six-bed ICU unit, a fully equipped operating theatre, an X-Ray and ultrasound machine, sterilisation room, pharmacy, laboratory and wash room. There is also a clinic within the hospital which is dedicated to less critical patients and minor injuries, and the hospital is also equipped to treat patients in general surgery, neonatal, internal medicine, thoracic and vascular surgery.

In January 2014 following heightened security concerns for the welfare of both patients and staff, the hospital was strategically relocated to an industrial part of Aleppo. The hospital is currently serving 13 towns and 110 villages, targeting those who are traumatised and require orthopaedics or neurosurgery. It’s currently treating 350 patients on a daily basis and approximately 23,890 operations have been performed to date. It is currently the only hospital providing care for an estimated population of just under one million people

WATER

The SKT Welfare Water Project provides essential clean and accessible water to those affected by severe water shortages from the conflict in Syria.

The Water Project includes drilling water wells, installing hand pumps and delivering clean water directly to people’s homes. Teams of volunteers drive water tankers to provide fresh, portable water to families who live too far away from wells. Over 40 hand pumps have been commissioned throughout the suburbs of Damascus, and new areas are being surveyed for drilling additional wells and opening fresh water supplies. On average, 4700 to 5000 people benefit every day from the SKT Welfare Water Project in Syria.

In the Qah Refugee Camp, SKT Welfare has drilled a well to create a water distribution system that pumps more than 80 cubic meters of water a day through 29 fountains that cover all tents of the camp. This project provides water to 2000 refugees on a daily basis.

In Ghouta, 3 large water wells have already been built to a depth of 70–80 metres. Residents register to receive water at SKT Welfare’s regional office and a team drives water trucks to various families from the earliest to the latest hours every day. Each truck contains 30 barrels of water and a typical family of six receives five barrels of water with each delivery.

WINTERISATION

Since 2012, SKT Welfare has delivered desperately needed winter supplies to refugee camps and villages throughout Syria and surrounding countries.

Winter packs are distributed every year. To date, 659,796 Syrians have received winter packs containing blankets, thermals, fleece jackets, gloves, socks and winter hats.

Your contributions have allowed SKT Welfare to distribute 1300 winterisation packs per week to Syrians, helping to make winter conditions more tolerable and reduce the risk of sickness and cold-related deaths.

EMERGENCY AID CONTAINERS

Since 2014, SKT Welfare h as been at the forefront of emergency aid container shipments to Syria from the UK and most recently, Chicago.

Shipping containers are sent approximately once a month and contain a wide range of essentials such as food, new winter clothing, blankets, coats, hats, gloves, sweaters, socks, shoes and baby milk along with non-perishable items such as rice, pasta, canned food and medical equipment. Many containers filled with these items have been successfully delivered and the contents distributed to the Syrian people. In 2017, volunteers from Birmingham filled a container with pallets of food which was successfully shipped to Idlib, Syria.

SKT Welfare takes great pride in seeing aid delivered from start to finish, ensuring the safest, most effective delivery efforts and, most importantly, that the aid is delivered directly to the intended recipient populations.

Our donors deserve transparency and the assurance that 100% of every donation goes to the people and projects we serve. SKT Welfare makes every effort to fulfil this obligation.
