Aleppo has water again, confirms Syrian Marist



City suffers one month without water

28/07/2015: Syria

The city of Aleppo has water again after the rebels cut it off for 31 days, according to a Marist brother in Syria.

Brother Georges Sabe made his comments in French on his Facebook page at 8am local time on July 28.

“To all our friends… The water has returned… Electricity has been restored (1 hour a day). Thank you to all those who shared our suffering… Your support, your solidarity, your generosity has touched our hearts. THANK YOU,” he wrote.

Since the conflict began in spring of 2011, the rebels have cut Aleppo’s water several times – the latest was in July.  


An Italian non-profit organization called ‘Aiutiamo la Siria!’ (Let's help Syria!) is involved in several projects to help the country with aid. 

One of the projects is called ‘Acqua per Aleppo!’ (Water for Aleppo!), which is ongoing, alongside its other four projects titled: Emergency Homs, Help to Study, Beyond the Obstacles and Italian Hospital in Damascus.

The Marist International Solidarity Foundation (FMSI) sent the organization 3,000 Euros to help Aleppo with water on July 28.
