Syrian President Bashar Assad along with his family paid visit to injured army serviceman in Hama countryside, where he drove through several towns to meet up with Syrian soldiers and their family members.
In Tal Aafar village, President al-Assad and his family visited Mohammad Ahmad Khalil who sustained injuries in the line of duty that caused disability rated at over 90%, and who received treatment and care by “Jarih al-Watan” program which also helped him start a project for raising sheep.
President al-Assad also visited Fatir Hassan Mansour in the village of Rabou, who was also injured while fighting terrorists leading to disability rated at over 90% as well. He, like Khalil, was also helped by Jarih al-Watan program to start a project.
Jarih al-Watan program was launched by the Presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic in 2014 to support wounded people and provide their needs, particularly those who sustained injuries that prevent them from returning to their normal lives. It provides prosthetic s to the injured and helps them start productive projects, in addition to providing assistance to those who suffer full disability. The project targets all wounded members of the Army and Armed Forces and supporting forces.
