The state’s care for the orphans in Syria is increasing. This was illustrated by the First Lady’s visit to two orphan care centers in Damascus.

Mrs. Asmaa al-Assad on Thursday visited Dar al-Aman and St. Gregory Orthodox Society for the Elderly and Orphans, two orphan care centers in Damascus, touring the newly-established classes in Dar al-Aman.

Mrs. Al-Assad was briefed on the conditions of the orphans and the efforts to help them become proactive citizens.

“Caring for the orphans is an ethical and humanitarian obligation in the normal course of things. Much more so under these extraordinary circumstances,” Mrs. Al-Assad said.

Meanwhile in St. Gregory Orthodox Society, Mrs. al-Assad met the society’s children and conversed with them about their school, encouraging them to continue their studies as a means of self-fulfillment, thanking the superintendents for their diligent efforts.

She indicated that the last couple of years “witnessed more awareness and enthusiasm among citizens about the necessity of giving care to orphans,” adding that the state, private sector and civil society share a responsibility to provide necessary care for the orphans.
