Zur Lage der Christen in Aleppo schreibt der Leiter des Relief Office der Syrisch Orthodoxen Kirche in Aleppo folgendes:
Nevertheless, and despite the atrocities and difficulties of life, many Christians insist to stay in Aleppo, refuse to leave their homeland or to go to other cities in Syria.
However, under all the pressure of war and the terrible conditions, the Relief Office at the Syrian Orthodox Archdiocese of Aleppo, manages to offer help and several services to our congregation families through different projects. As winter is approaching we seek to secure sources of funding in order to be able to provide the vulnerable needy families from the congregation with heating fuel, helping them to protect themselves from cold winter and more diseases. The least a family needs of heating fuel is 200 liters. This is the most important project for the moment. Electricity is also the second significant project; the least need of which 2 Ampere. We are trying to offer the best we can to our suffering congregation inn Aleppo."
