The Panel will cover:

- What are the biggest challenges that women face? Is it the freedom of movement, education, becoming involved in income-generating activities..? 

-How do me measure the psychological issues - two categories: maternal and child heath, or reproductive health - workloads, nutrition, stress. Are women more vulnerable than men in psycho-social terms? 

- Are there any particular roles that women in Syria need to fill in when the country is at war? The decision on migration, gender differences? How does the loss of a spouse alter a woman's life and status? 

- What support structures are available? how society can help? Are there any coping mechanisms to recommend?

Syria Relief Charity UK


Syria Relief was established in 2011 in response to the beginning of the Syrian crisis. Overwhelmed by the rapidly increasing disaster unfolding in Syria, a group of friends of Syrian heritage came together in order to provide emergency humanitarian aid, for what was initially assumed would be a short-term outreach.

Syria Relief had to adapt and swiftly expand to create a multitude of programmes to cater to the crucial needs within Syria, such as, education centres and food aid. They are at the forefront of non-profit support on the ground in Syria, covering unique and critical areas, from specialist psychiatric treatment for children suffering from PTSD to prosthetic limb clinics.
