As Syria’s civil war now enters into its third year, it is the families still living in the country who suffer the most. International Orthodox Christian Charities, or IOCC, is one of the few humanitarian organizations still in Syria providing desperately needed relief to people affected by the conflict. Roy Azar, project coordinator for IOCC, has been working inside Syria since IOCC began responding in 2012 to the humanitarian needs, and joins us today with his firsthand account of the humanitarian crisis in this war-torn country.
