Qatar Charity inaugurated the ‘Haq Alsham School’ in Elbab, northern Syria, with generous support from the people in Qatar as part of the ‘Sham Deserves’ drive it launched at the beginning of 2020.
The opening ceremony was attended by Mishaal al-Hajri, the regional co-ordinator of QC's Turkey office, Okan Tosun, the general director of Anda organisation, and the representatives of the local council and the Directorate of Education in El-Bab.

This is a secondary school for boys, and consists of 18 classrooms, offices, and laboratories for the benefit of nearly 1,260 students from the IDPs and host communities living in the area. Some 60 teaching and administrative staff are expected to work at the school.
“It is an integrated building in accordance with modern standards and will play an important role in educating young generations,” said Abdullah Muslim, the co-ordinator of the Education Section at QC's Turkey office.
Omran 1 and Omran 2 primary schools were also opened, as part of the Omran projects in Qabbasin camps, in the countryside of Aleppo. Each school consists of two classrooms, an administrative room, and toilets, in addition to a spacious courtyard where children can safely play. This aims to enhance the access of refugee children living in the camps to education and create a nurturing learning environment for them.
The local council and the Directorate of Education in El-Bab thanked the people of Qatar and QC for their constant support. QC had announced the continuation of its projects to rehabilitate and schools in northern Syria for the third year in a row, aiming to enhance the access of internally displaced students to quality education.
