Ahmad Mayen al-Ali is a civil engineer specialising in water provision for the Syrian Arab Red Crescent
I started my work at the Syrian Arab Red Crescent in 2005. I was working with other SARC volunteers, receiving and registering Iraqi refugees and distributing relief items to them.
In 2006, thousands of Lebanese nationals came to Syria as a result of the war. We responded to their needs by providing a range of services such as food parcels, first aid, psychosocial support, water and sanitation, as well as hygiene promotion services.
