There are effectively three major forces battling for the land: the Syrian Government  forces, various  militia and the so-called 'Islamic State', IS.

A Lost Generation
There is a real danger of a “lost generation” of Syrian children experiencing trauma and missing out on education. Language barriers and overcrowding in refugee camps means that places offered at local schools cannot be taken up. Children are also vulnerable to disease, malnutrition and exploitation. 
Poor immunisation has caused outbreaks of Measles and Polio.

Radio - a Solution
Radio is a tool which can reach millions of children in Syria and neighbouring coujntries, providing education, raise awareness about how to protect themselves and encouraging them to believe in their futures.

Women and girls also face abuse, violence and sickness through malnutrition and life in exile. Radio provides communication between experts and agencies to ensure that valuable information  is shared on what help is available for health, nutrition, water, sanitation and phsychological problems.

Radio - for communication of aid plans
Communication is a vital element in Aid assistance to ensure education and life-saving information reaches the people in need - wherever they are. The ETC has been trying to create a communications hub in the worst affected areas of Syria, but the MOFA (Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs) has so far not approved the equipment, which sits awaiting deployment in a store in Beirut. Radio Peace could relay the most urgent messages directly into Syria.  

Messages of hope and encouragement in our programmes are designed to strengthen the beleagured population of Syria.

Angelina Jolie calls for action on visit to
refugee camp

  • to promote Peace & Harmony
  • to educate refugee children
The Levant has been a hotbed of fighting for many years, but today an entire nation, Syria, is under threat from the self proclaimed IS, (Islamic State). They have taken over huge swathes of Syria, which was already embroiled in a bloody civil war.
To mark World Refugee Day, on 20th June Angelina Jolie visited a refugee camp on the border with Turkey. Accompanied by her 9 year old daughter Shiloh (her father is Brad Pitt) she spent some time touring the ramshackle camp which is home to thousands of Syrian refugees.

Angelia has now completed 40 humanitarian missions as part of her work as a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. On this visit she met with the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan,  and expressed her concerns:
"We are here for a simple reason: This region is at the epicenter of a global crisis. Nearly 60 million people are displaced from their homes. That is one in every 122 people on our planet. Our world has never been richer or healthier or more advanced. Yet never before have so many people been dispossessed and stripped of their basic human rights," she said. "We should call this what it is: not just a 'refugee crisis,' but a crisis of global security and governance, that is manifesting itself in the worst refugee crisis ever recorded – and a time of mass displacement."

She added, "I plead to the international community and leaders of the world to recognize what this moment in mass human displacement means. This is not just another day. This World Refuge Day marks some frightening truths about our inability to manage international crisis – about our inability to broker peace and find lasting solutions."

"I call, again, on the UN Security Council: Send your ministers and ambassadors here. Witness this crisis for yourself. See that it simply cannot go on. And that it is past time for a political solution to end the conflict. I thank the people of Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan for their generosity, and all host countries."
