Alshare3 foundation began in February 2010 with a project to support the displaced people of the Syrian Island because of the drought which took place between 2005-2007, where the number of injured people have become nearly 1,5 million, according to UN statistics. This happened as a result of the neglect of this problem by Syrian government that didn’t deal with it as an emergency. That led to displaced approximately 36000 families to the big cities like Damascus and Homs, so they form small isolated communities inside the Syrian society in the form random camps on the roads near cities. The first campaign by the project aimed at teaching 60 children, from a camp near Jdidt Artous in Damascus, the basics of reading and writings. The work was continuing from April 2010 twice a week until the summer of the same year when the first clash happened with the Syrian security forces. The intelligence officers threatened people that if they don’t stop receiving us, they will deport them from the camps on the pretext that the ground belongs to the army. Moreover, they asked the residents to tell them about our place in the camp to arrest us. At “Alhababin campaign” the education was accompanied with giving clothes and gifts, which were collected from the Syrian citizens, to the displaced children. The project stopped in the summer of the same year because of the annoyance from the security on the camp’s residents. In addition to education, there were campaigns of media entitled on facebook “No neglect, No oppression on the Syrian Island” to focus on this disaster. Although the project stopped, it helped in making similar projects inside other camps. We have established a photography show from our experience inside the camp entitled “Temporary”.
