Refugee Crisis: Here’s how you can help
08 September 2015
You’ve read the tragic stories of refugees young and old risking their lives by land or sea in search of a safe refuge in Europe. Their stories are heartbreaking and you may be wondering what you can do to help
Since 2012, we’ve been at the heart of the crisis serving where the needs are greatest. But as the war presses on and governments’ support continues to dwindle, these families are taking even more desperate measures towards a better life. As we’ve seen in the news, it’s become a matter of life or death.
So why are refugees risking their lives again? They are prohibited from working because of their status, which has destroyed their livelihoods. Most have depleted their entire savings as a result. Many more go into debt just to feed their families one more day. They desperately and urgently need food, shelter, water, and health care and many are willing to risk their lives to meet these needs.
That’s why we’re asking you to please make a gift today towards our Syrian Crisis Response. It truly is because of you that we can help the most vulnerable families affected by this war survive despite worsening circumstances.
If you want to make an even greater impact on the lives of Syrian refugees, consider becoming a monthly partner. Just 20-CHF a month can provide essential items like mattresses, blankets, and hygiene kits to Syrian families in great need.
