“Before the war, Syria was widely respected in the Middle East. Education and healthcare were free. Homs was developing very well; people were earning a reasonable salary, food was not expensive and many people could afford to buy a house or a car."
“No household in Syria has been unaffected by war” and the country’s recovery process will be long and hard. That was the assessment of Sister Annie Demerjian of the Sisters of Jesus, speaking recently in London.
