What is the Syria Civil Defence?

We are a group of nearly 3000 volunteers who work to save lives and strengthen communities in Syria. We rush to the scene of attacks to save the greatest number of lives in the shortest possible time and to minimise further injury to people and damage to property.

We are a neutral and impartial organisation. We do not to pledge allegiance to any political party or group. We serve all the people of Syria – we are from the people and we for the people.

All members of Syria Civil Defence are required to make the following pledge of allegiance:

I, ..(State name)…share the Civil Defence ideal of protection and assistance for all.
I pledge to fulfil all missions which will be entrusted to me in the spirit of the fundamental values of Civil Defence which are neutrality, impartiality and humanity.

You can see the full code of conduct for all members here.



What does the Syria Civil Defence want for the future?

We hope and pray for the cessation of bombing and fighting which target civilians and for peace and stability. We pledge that once fighting ends, we commit the Syria Civil Defence organisation to embark on the generational task of rebuilding Syria into a stable, prosperous and peace loving nation in which the social, economic and political aspirations of her people can be realised.
