BENEFITING: MIDDLE EAST CHILDRENS ALLIANCE
As the crisis in Syria rages on, an unprecedented number of civilians- men, women, and children-- have entered the status of refugee. The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) estimates that over 2 million people are currently displaced. This includes well over a million children. These refugees face tremendous difficulties on meeting basic needs for food, water, shelter, and clothing. These are violations of human rights; the crisis is one the international community--both as individuals and as nations-- must face.
This fundraiser aims to use donations as a means to aid refugees within Syria and the surrounding countries. We, as student ambassadors of the World Affairs Council, in collaboration with the Middle East Children's Alliance, hope to use these funds to alleviate the suffering for the many afflicted by this crisis.
