How to help Syrians if You’re in Cairo
A measure of a society’s humanity is the sum of how individuals come together in a community to help those most stricken, most downtrodden by the injustice and inhumanity of the world.
The Syrian refugee situation in Cairo is growing. We are not a charity or an organisation. We are simply the Syrian community banding together to help our brothers and sisters fleeing from monstrocities back home. After 14 months of the worst brutality the world has seen, your Syrian brothers and sisters are asking for help.
We can no longer shoulder the amount of people coming in. There are approximately 2000 Syrians in Egypt that have fled the violence and the number is slowly but steadily growing.
Although I’d love to take cash from you but since we are working on in-kind donations at this point and am still unable to give you receipts, I ask you to provide, instead, items of the most use.
On visiting many homes this last Friday I have been able to get a good assessment of the needs of these families. Below is a list of the most important things needed, anything outside this list is still welcome, I’ve only included a list to help you as a starting point. This is by no means exclusive. Please email me email@example.com to coordinate pick up before June 7 – the CARE-a-VAN will be organised for Saturday June 9.
Thank you and God bless.
