In light of tragic events involving a swelling population of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers making their way from the war torn Middle East to the safe harbor of the European Union, JEWISHcolorado is responding by setting up the Syrian Refugee Crisis Fund.
Some 6.8 million people in Syria are in need of aid and over 1.6 million people have fled due to the devastating effects of Syria’s civil war. Thousands of people are stranded in transit and must withstand being in a foreign land, oftentimes without their families.
Wherever there is humanitarian crisis, the Jewish community has always come together to address the suffering. This situation is no different. It is our collective responsibility to help repair the world (Tikkun Olam), which is why we are reaching out to you.
Dollars raised from the Syrian Refugee Crisis Fund will provide immediate assistance to refugees and their families.
Please join JEWISHcolorado and the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR) as we take part in a national effort to support refugees and migrants in Europe and the Middle East.
JCDR includes 15 organizations that have come together to form the Jewish Coalition for Syrian Refugees in order to educate and inform its membership about this humanitarian crisis. Member organizations include the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA).
JEWISHcolorado will absorb all administrative costs of this emergency relief effort so that 100% of collected donations directly support needs in affected areas.
Together we are empowered by our collective strength and our ability to support refugees fleeing war and hardship.
Thank you for your generosity.
