History can be traced by a thread of unfortunate events, sad tales of families, recurring narratives of occupied lands, and sights of depopulated regions. History is a collective entity, perhaps best thought of as a collection of small stories that add up, annul each other, and sometimes overlap. If we think of history as one unfolding narrative composed of tiny little fragments, it might be possible to alter it. Stories can change and destinies can be altered because the core of every story is not the event itself but the one igniting it: the human being. The human being is all powerful; he can start a war and bring peace, he can kill and he can give birth, he can damage and he can repair. It’s all a matter of choice.
Human Concern International (HCI) Middle East Region has made a choice, one that it is fully committed to. HCI has been actively involved in the region since 1989 as a non-political, non-sectarian NGO.
Being active and rigorous in helping disadvantaged groups in Sudan, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, and Lebanon, has always been HCI’s main concern.
