OPERATION RAMADAN 2017
Traditionally, organizations in the Middle East focus on clothing and food distribution during Ramadan. We decided that in addition to the food and clothing operations, we would try to work on sustainable development, too.
Our friend Georg from Innovation Aid agreed to partner with us in hosting a workshop for Syrian refugees in an informal tented settlement in Mafraq, where we taught them (while learning ourselves) how to create air conditioning systems without the need for electricity out of used plastic bottles and wooden boards.
Since we did this during the day, it was extremely hot and windy - but after four hours of work, we finished our first ever joint workshop! Hopefully the air conditioner will help cool down the fasting inhabitants of the house. We hope to go back and continuing the learning process with Georg and Innovation Aid soon!
