Marist Brothers build children’s playground in Aleppo

20/06/2016: Syria

Despite a day marked by heavy bombing throughout various parts of the city, many families attended the inauguration of a playground in the heart of Aleppo made by the ‘Blue Marists,’ which took place on the feast of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, June 6.

The playground was offered with the help of the Italian Non-Governmental Organisation ‘Aiulas, Aiutiamo la Siria Onlus.’

It includes swings, slides and open spaces for boys and girls, who in recent weeks have witnessed another escalation of bombs and mortar attacks.

Maidan, an area where many Armenian families live, has been one of the worst areas recently affected with over 20 deaths.

The NGO is organizing a health project to finance 100 health insurance policies for those who cannot afford medical expenses. The insurance would cover medical visits, tests, hospitalisations and medicine for one year.
