At the Syrian Frontier

The explosions, gunfire, the lack of water and food, the deaths and the funerals in Syria get more attention than the furtive living. Two Jesuits remain in Homs, actively feeding and teaching children (schools are closed).
‘Apart from humanitarian aid to the people who suffer in this situation, my priority is the education of the children. We must form a new generation in order to lessen the tension between religious groups.’
Read more of Jesuit Ziad Hilal’s words and about his mission.
