The Syria Fund Is Making A Difference In Jordan

I wanted to share this video from The Syrian Fund. It’s a non-profit organization started by New Yorker’s Lexi Shereshewsky and Demetri Blaisdell. In a time of intense division both here and abroad, the couple is striving to make a difference in the refugee crisis effecting Syria.

Focused on helping refugees in Mafraq and Azraq – cities in Jordan that have large numbers of refugees living outside of UN refugee camps – the couple have set two immediate organizational goals:

  1. Building education facilities to provide access to children who have missed years of school.
  2. Purchasing and distributing material goods including household items, medical supplies, and food packages.
