Dear Sunrise-USA Supporter,
First and foremost, Sunrise USA’s Board of Directors would like to offer our sincere and heartfelt thanks for your continuing and steadfast support since we began relief work in Syria in 2011. With the grace of God and your generous donations we have been able to distribute more than $20 million in aid to suffering Syrian civilian victims of war over the past seven years.
With your generous monetary donations Sunrise USA has set up numerous medical facilities, refugee camps and temporary schools. Additionally, we have sent 36 containers of clothing and supplies directly to Syria. We have been able to bring a smile to refugee children’s faces in Ramadan, Eid and Christmas with meals and gifts made possible by your generosity, buy there is still so much more to be done.
Over the past seven years conditions in Syria have steadily gotten worse. In March 2013 alone one million Syrians had fled their homes. Five grueling war-torn years later the number of Syrians seeking refuge from violence and destruction has skyrocketed to 11 million men, women and children.
Do we ignore the plight of Syrians by flipping the page in the newspaper or navigate to another website, or shall we endeavor to help use our sisters and brothers escape the worst nightmare of their lives?
The nutrition, health care, and education crisis among refugees are escalating as more and more people are fleeing in search of safety. We are grateful for your past support, but we cannot stress enough the need to continue to do more. Without your continued support we could not have set up medical facilities, refugee camps and makeshift schools. Unfortunately, the needs are only increasing.
Meeting the basic human needs of these refugees is a truly daunting task. This catastrophic humanitarian crisis can only be alleviated by your continued monetary and in-kind support for our cause. Together we can make a difference by making food, clothing, healthcare and education available to these innocent victims of war.
Let us join hands and be the ray of hope that will help pull our brothers and sisters out of the darkness and into a bright and prosperous future.
Board of Directors
