There’s a world out there that needs saving
It is a very good time to get off the couch and make an effort to make a difference, people, now more than ever. That may sound demanding, but honestly, there are people suffering . You could go on line and read about the Syrian refugees in order to get informed, like you are doing right now. Yup. This article’s purpose is to inform and persuade. To persuade specifically that the Syrian’s position at the moment is rough- very rough. You may know this already, but hey, that doesn’t affect me. Why should I care? You should care because Syria’s civil war is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Half the country’s pre-war population- more than 11 million people- have been killed or forced to flee their homes. Families are struggling to survive inside Syria, or make a new home in neighboring countries. Others are risking their lives on the way to Europe, hoping to find acceptance and opportunity. And the onset of harsh winters makes life as a refugee even more difficult. At times the affect of the conflict can be overwhelming. And you can help.
