Rumi Forum and Embrace Relief is organizing a help campaign for Syrian Refugees with a goal of $15,000. The Syrian refugee crisis has already gone on too long. Your donation, in any dollar amount, will go far and is greatly needed!
Did you know that over 1 million Syrian refugees are living in Turkey? These individuals have no home, no country, no running water, no electricity, and no promise of a brighter future. The number of people affected by the crisis are staggering. 5,000 Syrians become refugees every day. 1,600,000 houses are estimated to be damaged or destroyed in Syria. 2,000,000 Syrian refugee children are exposed to malnutrition.
On June 24, 2014, a group of 7 Americans from the East Coast visited Kilis, Turkey, a small town on the Syrian border.Thanks to support from the Rumi Forum, Truman National Security Project, and the non-governmental organization Kimse Yok Mu, which provides on the ground aid and relief, we had the profound opportunity to meet with a number of Syrian refugee families. And what they saw made them want to help the refugees with food, shelter, clean water, education and health.
Please donate. Every dollar counts! Your contribution will go to Embrace Relief, a partner organization supporting the important work of Turkish relief organization, Kimse Yok Mu (KYM).
KYM is working on the ground in Turkey to coordinate food, beds, clothing, and educational needs for Syrians taking refuge in Turkey. Through a network of volunteers, food is distributed daily to displaced families. If you give to Embrace Relief today, you can help local relief organizations buy much needed supplies and create long-term support for these refugees. Your donation will go towards furniture, food, clothing, educational, health and hygiene supplies.
