Respond to Syrian Refugee Crisis

The world is experiencing the worst refugee crisis since World War II. 54% of all Syrians are either refugees who have left Syria or have been displaced from their homes. Over 200,00 have already died in Syria. We MUST be a light in this darkness. We Can Make a Difference. Support HIAS, IsraAID, JCDR, IRIS, Save the Children, IRC, UNHCR, and other groups that are working at the forefront of this issue.
