Corruption claims rise over relief and aid in Syria, send Zaman Al Wasl your take
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Billions of dollars were sent to hundreds of individuals, institutions and even government during the past years of the Syrian war without anyone revealing the total number of money of relief to the Syrian affected populations. The money which leaked to the wrong pockets.

Destroying the hopes of Syrians in obtaining the basic needs of food and medication is paving the way to topple their high needs manifested in freedom, dignity and justice.

The relief file of the Syrian crisis is considered an exceptional file for many reasons. The most prominent is the size of money and donations pumped into the relief and the number of organization working on the Syrian crisis, their types and intertwining and finally the variety and divergence of funding sources and channels.

All these factors make the file of Syrian relief a huge and complicated one to an extent that following up, supervision, and monitoring procedures seem limited. This automatically led to gaps from which administrative and financial corruption leaked and it grew with the proportion and size of money and aid directed to Syrians in the light of millions of affected.

There is not enough information of how much money reached the targeted and affected in the relief work since nobody can say the total amount of money which has gone to the wrong pockets.

In addition to that, the limitation in the management of the relief work added another pressure on Syrians who already fled war to find themselves in a difficult reality in which they live in tents that do not match the rocket money they hear about coming to rescue them in their name and for them.

The American step of freezing millions of dollars used to fund organization helping Syrian population until they verify it represents the first official procedure around the world. It also confirms the violations in the relief work after many said it is only a claim without evidence.

Zaman al-Wasl will receive any document or information related to the corruption in the relief work related to Syria because the Syrians food, education, and aid is not a cause that can be compromised.

Zaman al-Wasl promises complete confidentiality with the sources and commitment to professionalism in verifying the information received before publication.

Zaman al-Wasl by this step hopes to be able to confront those who are manipulating the basic needs for Syrians without any mercy for the affected and their needs.

Zaman al-Wasl will receive all documents and information as well as inquires related to the relief file via the email: [email protected]
