BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
After seeing the devastating consequences of the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, particularly the images of Abdul Hameed al-Yousef holding his dead children, Aya and Ahmad, I could not stop thinking about how, six years into the Syrian Civil War, hundreds of thousands have died and millions have been displaced.
The International Rescue Committee is an organization that is on the ground in Syria supporting hospitals, clinics, mobile clinics and the training of emergency health workers who can act as first responders in crises such as these.
If you, like me, are horrified by what is happening and wish to find some way to help (in addition to calling your congressional representatives, I hope,) please help me in supporting the IRC and donate.
And if you are unsure, please take a look at this: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/06/world/middleeast/syrian-father-buries-children.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=0 I
know I will not forget their faces. Will you? I will match the first $1,000.
