Help Syria

There is a tragic photo on the internet of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi’s body that was taken when he was found on the shore after seeking refuge from Syria. Aylan passed away along side his mother Rehan and his brother Ghalib. All of this in front of the father who tried to save his family.

No matter what stance you take on the Syrian Refugee Crisis or on Europe’s response. We can all agree that Aylan, his mother, his brother and the thousands of refugees seeking a safe place shouldn’t be dying!

Aylan is just one. Aylan is just one too many.

Here is how we can help Syria’s children and families
