For this project, we are focusing on Internally Displaced Persons in Syria. Currently, approximately 1/3 of the Syrian population of 23M have been forced to flee their homes because of the nation’s situation.
The purchasing power of the dollar is considerably higher in Syria than in neighboring countries, Europe or the USA. Consequently, with help from people like yourself, we hope to send financial assistance through recognized Canadian charities such as Development and Peace to support projects benefiting those remaining in Syria and in calamitous need of humanitarian assistance.
We aim to help the population cope with the challenges they face and ultimately stay in their homeland.
The Syrian Cultural Center is requesting your assistance now in order to benefit from our Canadian government’s generous offer to match all donations made by Canadian individuals to approved Canadian charities performing humanitarian work in Syria by December 31, 2015.
