Damascus, SANA- The Syrian expatriates have managed to overstep the distance separating them from homeland and overcame the challenges of economic sanctions as well as the risks emerged from the terrorist war targeting it through proving, along five years of the crisis hitting their country, adherence to their homeland and intention to defend it either by the word or by action.
After three years of its establishment, the “Syrian Christians for Peace Association” in France found itself involved in all forms of support based on its members’ contentment of the necessity of enhancing the social and national ties between the expatriates and their families in the motherland and on the belief that Syria needs all its sons.
The Association Chairwoman Rowida al-Khouri told SANA that the association works on establishment of a hospital in the city of Mhardeh in Hama as it gained the approval of the Health Ministry after Hama governorate has presented the land with an area of 27 dunms.
The association aims at, according to al-Khouri, taking part in the reconstruction of Syria, supporting its economy, ensuring job opportunities to its citizens as the project has health and social dimensions.
The association plans to organize lectures addressing in France in a move addressing the French people about the Syrian community, its spectrum and coexistence, Al-Khouri pointed out. The lectures will touch upon what the Syrian people are facing of terrorism in an attempt to convey the true image of the situation in Syria to the French people.
We feel responsible towards our homeland.. We support the Syrian people against the war waged, in the media and economic fields, against them.. We also attempt to overcome the sanctions imposed on Syria through our activities at the time when the French government sent money and weapons in support of terrorism, al-khouri concluded.
