Syrian children at Zaatari refugee camp

Over one million people have fled the horrific violence in Syria, half of them children - and every day thousands more terrified boys and girls pour over the border to join them. These children have experienced fear and abuse that no child should have to go through. It's wrong that even one child should suffer like this.
Resources are at breaking point and funding is necessary to continue the essential work the NGO's and local charities are doing with children and families that have been affected.
Thousands more are pouring across Syrian borders every day to the refugee camps in Jordan.
The number of stories of incredible generosity and hospitality in Jordan is impressive. But it is hard to foresee how Jordan will continue to cope without greater assistance. Their economy is fragile and there is no end in sight in the flood of refugees. The Syrian country is being decimated; many Syrian refugees have lost everything and don't foresee going back anytime soon.
Romena Huq and Huda Alarishi will be volunteering at the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan. We are leaving on the 30th April 2013. We will be taking supplies personally to the camps, so far friends and family have been very generous, and we have been asked for ways to donate money.

We have set up this donation page, which will hopefully make it easier to donate. All money will go straight to the children who need it the most.
We will be volunteering alongside local staff who we know personally at International Relief and Development.
