At Barada, many volunteers pour their heart, soul and energy into doing their part to help the people of Syria.
DR. MARWAN KHOURY
CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
»The misery of our people is indescribable. I put my whole heart into helping my fellow Syrians, helping the needy, helping my countrymen who are facing hunger, the injured who cannot get medical treatment, and the children who cannot go to school. I cannot sit back and watch Syrians lose hope while the world looks on.«
Dr. Firas Khoury
BOARD MEMBER, TREASURER
»Syria is my second home and I have had many great times there. I volunteer so that we can give the people a little bit of hope again in this most difficult time and amid this catastrophe.«
»I have been closely following the events of the Syrian revolution since 2011. The inaction of the global community appalled me, made me feel sad, angry and incredibly powerless and helpless. My work with Barada is my personal contribution of taking concrete action to counteract that inaction. I have had all the advantages in my life – and I’d like to pass on some of them to people who did not have the luck that I did to grow up in a peaceful corner of this Earth.«

»If my parents had not come to Germany, I would now be one of these children I have met in refugee camps in Syria. I was simply lucky to be born in Germany. That is why I want to get involved, especially for Syrian children. We can share some of our luck if we have the chance.«
»Barada is the aid organisation, which enables me to use my knowledge, experiences and language skills for Syria. So I got more content with my self as I was able to help Syria from Germany. You should not let down the Syrian people!«
»Where lots of little people, in lots of little places, make lots of little steps – they can change the face of the worlds. For this reason I want to help the Syrian people and especially the children to overcome their hard fate.«
