Peeking out onto the eastern coast of the Mediterranean, Syria is one of the longest inhabited countries in the world with a rich history stretching back to 2500 BC. Cities such as Damascus and Aleppo contain vibrant new centres as well as beautiful old cities with cobbled lanes, grand Damascene houses and a thousand laneways to explore.
Syria is home to a large Palestinian community and an increasing number of Iraqi refugees. AVI is currently exploring ways in which we can work in the country.
