The foundation has supported hundreds of humanitarian, reconstruction, scholarship, therapeutic and pastoral projects in Syria worth more than €30 million, said Martina Hatoková, a head of ACN Slovakia.

Slovaks also took part in the campaign by going to discussions and group prayers with Syrian archbishop Antoin Chahd, who visited seven Slovak villages in November 2018.

Hatoková added 6.3 million people are displaced within Syria and about 13.1 million people depend on humanitarian help.

In addition, seven million children and youth need help in education and every fourth child was injured during the war, as reported by TASR.
