Actors and humanitarians Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski have been welcomed as board members to INARA.
INARA’s founder and president, Arwa Damon, said: “We are thrilled that Thomas and Amanda have joined our board. For years now, they have played an active role in raising awareness and funds for our organization. We look forward to working with them both and helping even more children in need.”
Speaking about joining INARA as board members, Amanda and Thomas said: “The work of INARA has an impact that reverberates beyond anything we can imagine. Every single child that they help is given the opportunity to lead a happier and healthier future, and that is why we have decided to join as board members. The Syrian Civil War may have slipped the headlines, but the effects are still being felt to this day, and they are being felt by the most vulnerable: children. We will not let these children be forgotten, and neither will INARA."
Amanda Seyfried added: “INARA is a small organization making a huge impact in the lives of children affected by war. As a mother, there are few things I feel are more worthy of our time, energy and support.”
