ASL Syrian Refugee Appeal

Backround

Right now, in Syria, fighting is raging. The civil war started in March of 2011 and the conflict is still going on today. The war has taken and displaced millions of Syrians. Families are forced to flee their homes and take little of their belongings, as they take refuge in the surrounding countries such as Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, and Jordan. These countries have set up mass refugee camps, Lebanon having the biggest.

The Issue

This causes many problems which are detrimental to the health and safety the refugees, adults and children. The conditions are extremely tough, basic necessities such as food, water, shelter, and medicine. Due to more and more people vacating syria and living in refugee camps, these camps are becoming much overcrowded (see picture on right), this causes diseases spread like fire. Other problems include, the lack of warmth, as refugee camps are comprised of temporary basic tents, which have little protection from the outside elements. The logical way to solve this problem would be to have warm clothes for the harsh winters, but when leaving their homes quickly and traveling out of the country most families could not afford to take any luxuries. This causes the lack of proper clothes but also other necessary tools need to live in a refugee camp for a prolonged period of time.
