Help Save a School in Aleppo
My good friend Kellie Strom, who works tirelessly in the UK to aid Syrians, writes of a campaign to help one school in Aleppo.
Friends of mine in Syria Solidarity UK have been directly involved in putting together the following emergency appeal. We know the people running the school in Aleppo and the people fundraising in the UK.
We have been in ongoing contact with people in Aleppo over several months. Even as they face the horror of constant bombing and the anxiety of increased food shortages, one of our key contacts has been working on funding for this school.
Established funders we have been speaking to won’t take it on because Aleppo is high risk and therefore falls outside their guidelines for funding. Being in besieged east Aleppo there is of course no safe school option for these children, but they still need an education as well as protection from bombs and food to eat.
I can personally vouch for the bonafides of this campaign, so please consider giving here:
