Support the White Helmets
Organized by: The Syria Campaign
When the bombs rain down in Syria, the White Helmets rush in. In a place where public services no longer function, these unarmed volunteers risk their lives to help anyone in need - regardless of religion or politics. Now they're desperately short on equipment.
Donate to buy the White Helmets protective gear, medical bags and digging tools so they can save even more lives in Syria.
Bombs land on homes, schools and hospitals every day. When this happens the White Helmets rush in to search for life in the rubble - fully aware that more bombs may fall on the same site. These firefighters, search and rescue workers and medics have saved 2,514 lives in this past year alone - and this number is growing daily.
Here's what our money will buy:
- Elbow and knee protectors: $48.02
- Safety goggles: $4.68
- Fire extinguisher: $93.34
- Helmet: $144.64
- Rescue rope: $218.83
- First aid kit: $89.23
- Gas mask: $110.87
- Defibrillator: $3,143.01
The White Helmets risk their lives so that others may live. They ask for nothing in return except tools they need to save even more lives. Many have paid the ultimate price for their compassion - 27 have been killed in the line of duty in the past four months alone.
The volunteers have a saying: "to save one life is to save all of humanity". At a time when so many have chosen to kill, the White Helmets have chosen to save lives. Donate now to stand with them, on the side of life.
