Big Heart was established in response to the worsening Syrian conflict, to provide impartial humanitarian assistance, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering. We are a U.S.-registered 501(c)3 non-profit, non-political, non-religious, humanitarian and development organisation.
Our impact goes beyond numbers: it lies in human stories of survival, dignity, humility, and hope
Amira – a 48-year old widow and mother from Al Ghouta – was forced to go without food so her children would have enough to eat. She re-discovered hope with Big Heart’s food security project.
“I hope for such projects to continue, they are the bedrock for the vulnerable and those who have no one else to turn too in these unfortunate times.”
Young Dalia and her family rebuilt their lives in Turkey as refugees, but she could no longer read or write Arabic. When they returned to Syria, Big Heart’s education project allowed her to re-master her native language.
“In this school, I took my first steps … to carve out a path for the future.”
Samir – a 55-year old father of four from Idleb, previously unable to feed his family – participated in Big Heart’s agricultural project, and received a small farmer’s kit, seeds, fertilizer, and farming tools. Now he grows ample food.
Samir plans to sell some of his surplus crops to generate income in the future.
Khalid – a 45-year old father of five from Aleppo – participated
in Big Heart’s micro-gardening pilot, and received a micro-garden kit, seeds, fertilizer, soil, peat, and gardening tools. Khalid feels relieved he can provide for his family.
Friends and neighbors who were skeptical about growing food in a city changed their minds after seeing his success.
