Fundraising Report for Syrian Refugees
The good news is that our $17,207 donations in our fundraising on November 14 2015, were distributed between more than 85 families. Careful assessment was done by our trusted and hardworking activists in Erbil with input from ERC(Erbil Refugee Counsel) to determine eligibility. Each family and individual recipient’s name appeared as registered Syrian refugee in ERC.
All those eligible families gathered in of the hosting villages were received the cash donations of mostly $200/per family of 4-6 persons. For the past 3 years, this was the second time they received donations.
We were so fortunate to have very talented and trustworthy activists in the area that did the heavy lifting. You can see in the attached reports that they have done a fantastic job of putting a nice report and pictures. We have deliberately removed few pages containing names of refugees and will be glad to provide any details if needed. What a family can buy with $100.00 dollars is also included in the report for your review.
This was a great team effort and surely demonstrated that when caring people act collectively, people in desperate need benefits.
Thank you so much everyone!
