Syria-Crisis-Appeal-Jan-2016_webflyer

The ongoing conflict in Syria has caused one of the largest humanitarian crises in the last few centuries. The millions of civilians who have fled their home to find safety will struggle to stay warm this winter. Many of the refugees are living in shelters and poorly constructed tents without adequate clothing or protection from the cold, leaving them at risk of hypothermia, pneumonia and other deadly diseases. Your donation will go towards providing the necessary provisions to civilians living in refugee camps. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

$75 will go towards:

  • Blankets
  • Winter Clothes
  • Heater
  • Cooking Stove
  • Shelter
  • etc.

$50 will go towards:

  • Food Essentials
  • Baby Food
