THE STORY:

Specific Cause: Refugee Children from Syria

Deadline: Jan 21st, 2014

This past summer, I had the privilege of assessing mental health needs in these vulnerable populations; there is no doubt that these children need our help. With the Holiday Season approaching, please share in the spirit of giving by donating to this cause. I personally saw the dire needs for health services and I would like to share a few of heart-breaking yet ubiquitous scenes with you. 

I've met a 4 y/o boy with cerebral palsy, crying in pain, who hadn't received any treatment or therapy for 2 years… 
One day as I was visiting a classroom, a 2nd-grade girl suddenly ducked under her desk, crying and asking for her mom, when a plane flew by… 
A 14 y/o teenage girl would choose to walk an hour under the sun to the hotel where she temporarily works as a housekeeper and not take the bus, because she was on one at the time when she experienced a traumatizing event… 

In this joy-filled holiday season, please consider donating to this cause.
