As the conflict in Syria enters its sixth year, a political solution is still to be found. Over 200,000 people have been killed and over one million injured. More than half of all Syrians have been forced to leave their homes, often multiple times, making Syria the largest displacement crisis globally.
Five years after the outbreak of the Syria conflict, UMR is assisting Syrian refugees and Syrians trapped by the violence inside the country. We provide medical and other critical aid, such as food aid, winter packs, clean water and education resources. UMR is currently providing support to Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Syria.
For just $100 you can help us provide medication for over 50 patients.
For just $90 you can provide food for an entire family for a month.
For just $1500 we can support a dental clinic for an entire month.
All proceeds from the dinner will be donated directly to these causes. Inshallah we hope to see you there!
