SATUC Syrian football players

The Syrian team are refugees and orphans now based in Egypt and their selection was organised by the charity Syria Relief. Syria Relief was established in September 2011 by a group of British-based Syrian expatriates, shortly after the start of the crisis in Syria. They help people affected by the conflict, irrespective of race, religion, geographical location or political persuasion, with special attention given to supporting families. They have a solid network of committed staff on the ground inside Syria, which enables them to access hard-to-reach rural areas, as well as heavily populated and even besieged areas. Through these networks they support and help administer a number of vital field hospitals, primary health centres, mental health clinics and other healthcare programmes inside Syria. Funds also go towards education, food and food security, water and sanitation, orphan and family support, and shelter.
