BENEFITING: The Syria Fund, Inc.

Yasmine Hamdi

THE STORY:

Hi! I'm Yasmine, the 18 year old author of Spirit of the Wind. In July 2017, I had the life-changing opportunity to travel to Northern Jordan to help The Syria Fund distribute necessities to refugee families, and meet refugee children. With those invaluable experiences and memories, I will be writing my second book on the Syrian civil war to raise awareness about its devastating effects.  (Read my blog post about my experience helping refugees with YOUR donations here)


The Syrian refugee crisis is the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War II. According to UNHCR, over 1.3 million refugees reside in Jordan where about 119,000 of them are children out of school. The Syria Fund is a non-profit organization that runs a school in Azraq, which allows displaced children to continue learning through general classes and music/ art programs. The Syria Fund also distributes critically-needed supplies to students living in poverty. The donations of generous people across the world help prevent a lost generation and make it possible for hundreds of refugee children to get their childhoods back.


UPDATE: As of June 2018, The Syria Fund has announced they are building a 2nd school in Jordan to impact even more kids! And they need OUR help getting it running.
