TORONTO — Humanitarian aid workers in Syria and Lebanon are exhausted, said Helene Tremblay-Boyko, who recently traveled to the region.
It isn't the exhaustion a person feels at the end of a long day, she said. This exhaustion comes from working in the same desperate conditions as the people they serve.
“We do not know here (in Canada) what is going on there,” said Tremblay-Boyko, vice president of the Development and Peace national council. “They need peace. They need to be able to start rebuilding their lives. We need to do everything we can to enable a peace accord.”
