Rouba Mhaissen, Syrian-Lebanese founder of Sawa for Development and Aid, an Oxfam partner, was the only voice from civil society to speak at the Supporting Syrians conference in London, 4 February 2016, where some $10 billion was pledged. We caught up with her afterward, to get her thoughts. Support Oxfam's Syria Crisis Appeal: http://www.oxfam.org/en/eme...
Sawa for Development and Aid (http://www.sdaid.org/
) is a non-profit organization that works in Lebanon to improve the living conditions of families in need and help individuals in the community change from beneficiaries to independent agents through developing their expertise. It also provides material, logistical, and psychological support for them in order to live a dignified life with minimum standards, through diverse complementary programs (relief, development and educational, among others).
