Projects For Syria

New for the week of Saturday, Sept. 1st

Hajaar Khateeb Foundation is a 501 (c)3 approved organization since 2001. Recently, in light of the events unfolding in Syria it has been restructured in order to assist the suffering people of Syria. The bulk of our board members are originally from Syria and Palestine, they could not stand by watching the Syrian people suffer such brutalities without putting forth their best efforts to help.

Our two current projects:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amaal Project: Our aim is to form and professionally train a team of men and women to help counsel refugees who were victims of rape. Rape is a regularly used tool of war against men, women and children by the Assad regimes militias. We are currently in the process of acquiring a 'safe haven' in Jordan where we will counsel these victims and help to reintegrate them into society so they may have happy and healthy relationships.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Syrian Kids Interim Effort for Sanctuary (SKIES): This project has been approved by the U.S. government. It is a simple concept with a difficult implementation; our goal is to locate children in Syria who maybe under immediate danger and work with their parents in order to put them in a Syrian foster home, temporarily here in the United States. Our team of social workers will be conducting extensive interview processes with each family interested in fostering a child. When the conflict is over or at a time of the parents choosing we will safely return the child to his/her parents.
