BENEFITING: Islamic Relief USA
We are students and activists who can no longer sit by,
We believe in the recovery of the Syrian people.
The Claremont Colleges Syrian Human Rights Project is a student-created activism committee that plans to work both in the 5C community and globally to provide humanitarian relief for all those affected or displaced by the ongoing conflict in Syria. The group is non-denominational and has no political affiliation, with an emphasis on refugees in nearby countries of Jordan and Turkey. The group’s mission is to raise awareness and concern about the dire circumstances of those affected by this conflict, and also to begin to do something about it by flying over the summer to Jordan to deliver funds amassed through a variety of different methods that will then be directly funneled into the needs of said refugee camp as designated by Islamic Relief, and may include another organization depending on relevant circumstances. This activism that stresses both thoughtful consideration and also direct action will benefit the 5C community as well as globally displaced and disenfranchised people.
