As the crisis in Syria gains some international attention, it’s difficult for some to know how they can best support Syrians — both local and abroad. Here is a list of some things you can do to help.

  1. Listen to Syrians.
  2. Use whatever platform you have to help Syrians tell their own stories to a broader audience. Elevating their voices is better than you speaking over or for them.
  3. Main news networks are notoriously negligent when it comes to sharing news related to Syria. To get the most up-to-date information, follow news networks and journalists working directly inside and coordinating with those inside Syria.
  4. Share relevant information on whatever social media platforms you use often. Your sharing can illuminate others.
  5. Talk with your friends and families about Syria. Your conversation can plant the seed of curiosity and compassion in them.
  6. Contact your local/state senators/representatives and Washington. Put pressure on them to take meaningful action regarding Syria. Visit NationalPriorities.org to find contact information.
  7. Go to local education/advocacy/protest events to stand in solidarity with Syrians fighting for their freedom, dignity, justice, truth, and peace.
  8. Volunteer for organizations serving the Syrian population. There is no such thing as “too many” volunteers when it comes to Syria.
  9. Donate to organizations helping save and improve lives of Syrians. We have listed a few trusted organizations for you to check out below in the categories of:
    • MEDICAL & MENTAL HEALTH
    • HUMANITARIAN RELIEF, AID, EDUCATION, AND DEVELOPMENT
    • EMERGENCY RESCUE FOR GROUND AND SEA
    • REFUGEE WORK
