As I promised in my Rosh Hashanah morning drash, here is a list of organizations you can support to help the Syrian refugees. Don’t forget to write the President, our senators, and your congressional representative to ask that we in the US quickly admit more Syrian refugees.
This charity exists to save children like Alan Kurdi, with a fleet of rescue boats patrolling the Mediterranean to save migrants lost at sea.
A group of social activists documenting stories in the Calais migrant camp, they also raise relief funds.
Provides classes and cultural enrichment and scholarships to Syrian children in Turkey.
A US-based charity that works in Turkey and is also focused on educational opportunities for Syrian children, currently raising funds to rebuild schools in Syria.
One of the few organizations that directly provides aid on the ground in Syria, including food, clothing, water, sanitation and crucial medical assistance to “help people to stay in Syria instead of fleeing to another country.” They accept donations via their page on JustGiving.com.
Charity Navigator has a list of highly ranked charities currently helping Syrian refugees.
Among them is Globalgiving that supports grassroots support for Syrian refugees, International Medical Corps, and Medical Teams International, which provide medical care to refugees.
