The Social & Welfare Committee will be conducting fundraising on Friday July 27 to help the suffering people of Syria. The money collected will be sent through Islamic Relief USA to support Syrian families.
Entire towns & neighborhoods have been isolated since the uprising began in 2011. In many communities, people are forced to remain in their homes because of the violence. They cannot commute to work, school and other places of business or get supplies or medical care. This makes life unbearable for people who already have little access to food, water, medical care & electricity.
Additionally, hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have fled to neighboring countries, including Jordan. More than 80,000 Syrians recently estimated to be taking refuge in Jordan. United Nations officials have reported nearly half a million people displaced in total.
Please donate generously to help your brothers and sisters facing difficult times in Syria. Your Zakat can be used for this donation. Envelopes marked as "Syria Donation - FUND 25" will be provided in IAR lobby effective July 27.
