THE STORY:

Dear Family, Friends, and Colleagues, 

I am using an opportunity to run my first marathon on May 14, 2016, to raise awareness in the community about the plight of Syrian refugees worldwide.

As the daughter of displaced Palestinian refugees who sought refuge through education in England and then the United States, I strongly empathize with Syrians who face unimaginable trauma. I grew up hearing horrifying stories of forceful displacement, sickness, and death. I will not claim to understand what it feels like to have everything taken from you or to face violence and possible violent death, with limited options of escape. I can, however, empathize and use what limited resources I have to share these stories. This very second Syrians are traveling across the Mediterranean to find safe havens, and many, including women and children, are drowning at sea.

Currently, there are almost 12 million internally and externally displaced Syrians as a result of one of the bloodiest civil wars in the last two centuries. Millions are living in desolate conditions in refugee camps bordering Syria, including Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq. Some have made it to countries like Greece, others to Germany, and some others, the lucky few, are offered asylum outside Syria. A crime against humanity and genocide is occurring under our noses and one of the oldest and most beautiful civilizations is being destroyed. There is no end in sight.

Over the next three and a half months I will train hard to prepare for this rigorous, high intensity trail marathon. My hope is that you will consider supporting me in some really ambitious goals to raise money and awareness for Syrians worldwide. I will post picture and video updates throughout the course of this fundraiser, on CrowdRise, on my Facebook and Instagram profiles. Please consider following me on Instagram (@hanadieyousef) and Facebook.

All of the funds raised will be donated to the Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM), which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees.

SCM is a charitable non-profit organization originally formed in 1996 to gather and publish information on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and to promote understanding of the people, cultures, languages, religions, and land of this region.  Since the onset of the civil war in Syria in 2011, SCM began collecting and distributing humanitarian aid and coordinating medical missions to Syrian refugee camps in Jordan and Greece. Your donations will go directly to assisting Syrian refugees in Jordan and Greece. The funds will be used to provide medicine, food, and blankets for these refugees and organized volunteer missions. For more information on SCM and the ongoing volunteer medical missions to Greece they are currently organizing – visit https://salaamculturalmuseum.wordpress.com/.

Thank you for your kind support, as always, and taking the time to read this. I hope you will join me in my effort in raising awareness and funding for displaced Syrian refugees.

Please consider donating and spreading the word for my campaign! https://www.crowdrise.com/humanitarianeffortfo/fundraiser/hanadieyousef

Sincerely,

Hanadie Yousef
