HELP A SYRIAN REFUGEE CHILD IN 2018
There's one really easy way to deliver real change to others this year, and that's by 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 $5,133*
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:
9 people to sign up for $50 per month
17 people to sign up for $25 per month
28 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 2017 financial year. Depending on the injury and complexity of the case, treatment can range from $130 to $50,000. This total includes all the program costs relating to the child such as medical, logistical and caseworker costs.
In total, we raised over $75,000 during the holiday period. This total is enough to provide medical treatment to approximately 15 war wounded refugee children from Syria.
This year’s Giving Tuesday has been a huge success for INARA. We have more than doubled last year’s record, raising $5,581 in total.
We are partnering with one Primary Health Care Center (PHCC) in the north of Lebanon to identify new cases that we may be able to help, with more partnerships with other PHCCs expected in the near future.
We have been awarded $35,000 by the Kathryn McQuade Foundation to help fund the day-to-day operational costs involved in providing life-altering medical treatment for wounded refugee children.
Actors and humanitarians Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski have been welcomed as board members to INARA.
An organization called Who Is Hussain donated clothes to some of our children in celebration of Eid, the festival that marks the end of Ramadan.
INARA will be awarded $164,700 by UNICEF to continue our partnership with them in Lebanon until the end of 2018.
This Ramadan we managed to raise over $25,000 to help refugee children in desperate need of medical attention.
Barely two weeks into Ramadan and we have already raised over $9,500!
Prize winning journalist Rania Abouzeid will donate a portion of her earnings for her new book, No Turning Back: Life, Loss, and Hope in Wartime Syria, to INARA.
