Since the beginning of protests in March 2011, there has been an increasing humanitarian crisis in Syria. Thousands of people are displaced in refugee camps, or are struggling to find food and heating for the winter. Medical aid is needed too. We decided to set this project up to help some of those needy families because we are hearing first hand what the situation is like. This project is to enable relief to reach those families. Money raised will be used to purchase basic humanitarian relief for those in the greatest need. The biggest challenges involved are in actually delivering the aid to those who need it, In partnership with organisations like the red cross we hope to be able to make a difference.
