Chip in to help Syrian refugee families
Dear MoveOn member,
By now, you’ve probably seen the photo of the body of a drowned 3-year-old Syrian refugee named Aylan Kurdi, found on a beach in Turkey—still wearing his tiny Velcro sneakers, blue shorts, and a red T-shirt.1 (I won’t paste it here. You can easily find it online.)
The refugee crisis stemming in part from the turmoil in Syria isn’t new. But for just a moment, this one image has united people around the world in grief, horror, and the resolve to act.
Can you chip in now to provide direct support to Syrian families who have fled their homes?
Click here to make a tax-deductible donation to help Syrian refugees.
Just $141 is enough to support a family of five refugees for a month. Your tax-deductible gift—which will be administered through the Lifeline cash assistance program of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)—will help families to pay for rent, food, health care, and children’s needs. The program also provides refugees with choice, control, and dignity, as they choose how best to care for their families.A donation isn’t going to end the refugee crisis in Europe—and there’s more that needs to be done to ease the suffering ofSyrians and other refugees and migrants streaming into Europe. But it will provide food, shelter, and medical supplies to a family in desperate need. It will improve the lives of people who have lost everything. And it will help keep our hearts open to the suffering of families caught in wars and trauma around the world—so we can keep seeking peaceful ways to stand with them in their time of need.
Can you help out by making a tax-deductible gift now to provide direct support to Syrian families who have fled their homes?
Yes, I’ll make a donation to help Syrian refugees.
Thanks for all you do.
