IDLIB, SYRIA, October 25, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently distributed school supplies and uniforms to 300 displaced students living in camps in the northern Syrian countryside.
Students in Idlib, Dana, Ma’arat Masrin and surrounding areas received backpacks, stationary, uniforms and shoes.
