With support from the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), Sweden and Germany
Rayan village of Al-Safireh district in east rural Aleppo, located more than 30 kilometres east of Aleppo city, is one of several remote locations where UNICEF-supported mobile teams travel to provide children with various services, helping them reach their full potential. This summer in Rayan village, children have rushed three days a week to the local school building to participate in a number of UNICEF-supported educational and recreational activities.
With support from the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), Sweden and Germany, a mobile team, comprised of 42 members, has reached children in the village with explosive ordnance risk education and awareness-raising on child rights and COVID-19 precautionary measures as well as sessions on personal and respiratory hygiene best practices. Pre-school-aged children also benefitted from early childhood education activities.
