Organized by: Bissan Fakih

When the bombs rain down, the White Helmets - or the Syrian Civil Defence - rush in. These firefighters, medics and search and rescue workers are first responders in the most dangerous place on earth.

In a place where public services no longer function these unarmed volunteers risk their lives to help anyone in need - regardless of their religion or politics. They ask for nothing in return except tools to save more lives. They're desperately short on equipment but together we can get it to them.


To keep saving lives in Syria, the White Helmets need protective gear, medical bags and digging tools. Here's some of what your money can help buy:

Goggles - $4.68 USD
Elbow and knee protectors - $48.02 USD
First aid kit - $89.23 USD
Gas mask - $110.87 USD
Fire extinguisher - $93.34 USD
Helmet - $144.64 USD
Rescue rope - $218.83 USD
Defibrillator - $3,143.01 USD

The volunteers save people on all sides of the conflict - pledging commitment to the principles of “Humanity, Solidarity, Impartiality” as outlined by the International Civil Defence Organisation. This pledge guides every response, every action, every life saved - so that in a time of destruction, all Syrians have the hope of a lifeline.

As the conflict in Syria worsens, ordinary people are paying the highest price. More than 50 bombs and mortars a day land on some neighbourhoods in Syria. Many are rusty barrels filled with nails and explosives, rolled out the back of government helicopters onto homes, schools and hospitals.

The White Helmets rush in to search for life in the rubble - fully aware that more bombs may fall on the same site. These volunteers have saved 2,514 lives in the past year alone - and this number is growing daily.
