HELP A SYRIAN REFUGEE CHILD IN 2017
There's one new year's resolution that you can make that will deliver real change to others this year, and that's setting up a monthly donation to INARA.
Every time we meet a parent whose child has been injured, either in the Syrian War or from living as refugees in Lebanon, we're told how they would do anything to stop their child's suffering. But finding work and saving money to pay for expensive medical treatment is often impossible for these parents.
This is where you can do something to help.
Here at INARA we do everything we can to put an end to the pain and misery of an injured child. The Syrian refugee families we meet often feel as though there is no one out there who can help them. We act as a reminder that people do still care. But we can only do that if people continue to donate.
OUR AVERAGE CASE COSTS $5,875*
To do the incredible work that we do we are calling on people today in this new year to set up a monthly donation. If we want to pay for one extra child's treatment, we don't need many people to help. All we would need in one year is:
10 people to sign up for $50 per month
20 people to sign up for $25 per month
33 people to sign up for $15 per month
As you can see, it doesn't take a lot of money or a lot of people to make a big change for Syrian children who have lost everything because of war. So set up your monthly donation today.
* This is the average figure in the 2015/2016 financial year. Depending on the injury and complexity of the case, treatment can range from $130 to $50,000. This total includes all the programme costs relating to the child such as medical, logistical and caseworker costs.
On Giving Tuesday this year (2017) we managed to raise an incredible $2,515 in just one day – beating our target of raising $2,000.
We raised an incredible $20,000 at our New York fundraiser.

We raised over $11,000 this Ramadan, beating our target and also doubling the amount of money raised last year during our Ramadan Appeal.
With your help we managed to raise $100,000 in less than five months. Every single dollar in that time was doubled by The Secular Society, meaning we have raised $200,000 to provide medical treatment for refugee children from Syria.
