More than 2 million children are currently living as refugees as a result of the crisis in Syria. Having already lost their homes, schools, and communities, they are now being deprived of their most basic needs: adequate shleter, clothing, and access to drinking water.
"UNICEF has been on the ground since the conflict began, helping to mobilize the largest humanitarian operation in history and working closely with partners to provide education, physical protection, psychological support and clothing to Syrian refugee children in Iraq, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and other countries; immunize children against disease; and provide millions of people with access to safe drinking water." (UNICEF)
"For these children, what's at stake isn't politics. It's their future." (UNICEF) I chose to host this fundraiser because their future matters greatly to me, and while I don't have a lot of resources available to me to offer help, I do have a voice. I have chosen to use my voice to assist UNICEF in continuing their humanitarian efforts in Syria and neighboring countries.
