BENEFITING: SYRIA RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT
A cycling relay from Brussels to Reyhanli, Turkey, from August through October, 2014
What began as popular uprisings against the Syrian government turned into civil war by the Spring of 2011, and that war has become a sectarian conflict. By September of 2013, the death toll from this war had risen to 120, 000. While nations debate on who to support with weapons for this war, our interest is solely with the war's victims-- those caught in the middle of this sectarian violence.
As of the autumn of 2013, more than two million Syrians have fled their country to escape this violence, and they have left everything behind. According to the UN, some 6 million people inside Syria are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, and 4 million of those have been internally displaced.
We are raising money for Syria Relief and Development which provides humanitarian aid to Syrians and Syrian refugees affected by violence, hunger, poverty, injury and displacement. The volatile situation in Syria has created a dire need for food, shelter and medical supplies. SRD is working to address these needs through its established programs within Syria and in surrounding regions. SRD is based in the US with offices in Amman, Jordan.
