Our primary interest is aiding Christians through financing their
own micro-projects that would provide them with income to preserve their dignity
and alleviate the calamities of the crisis.
The team at Hope Center reviews and evaluates the projects and the extent to which the applicant has planned for his/her idea. If accepted, the center starts providing funds for the project to initiate.
Besides aiding Christians in need, this initiative aims for reviving the city of Aleppo that has lost most of its economic structure.
I was displaced from my house in Al-meedan area after it got damaged, to my uncle’s house, I left my shop and became unemployed for six months,which was the hardest period of my life, then I worked at my uncle’s shop but I lost my customers and I need a better income because the profits are little and these machines will help me alot to provide a decent life for my family and try to overcome the hardships we went through.
I lost my job, my shop and my machines in Bustan Al-basha area,I can't go back there and the equipment is irreplaceable because it is too expensive.

Because of war and the difficult circumstances that the city of Aleppo has witnessed, we lost our shop which was the family’s only source of income. My brother who's surving in the military was shot by a sniper and I helped him with affording the costs of his medical bills, along side with the family expenses; all that put a lot of pressure on me, then I heard about this initiative and I felt that there's still hope to start again, turn the page of sorrows and have the chance to work and help my family.
