Why Pay Attention?
It can be hard, and it can be overwhelming, but we must pay attention to what is happening in Syria. Our Syrian brothers and sisters have endured some six years of violence and conflict: They don’t have the choice to get tired of suffering, and we don’t have the choice to forget them.
By working together with humanitarians like you, we’ve been able to help more than 9.3 million Syrians so far. Spreading the word about this work is so important because it encourages others to be a part of this humanitarian movement. Watch this video to see how individual donors, volunteers and staff came together to make a difference for Syrians in need this past December. Share the video as your first act of social advocacy for Syria.
