International Relief & Development (IRD) opened Za’tari, a refugee camp in Jordan, to assist Syrian refugees with security and shelter. IRD has been in Jordan since March and they will be running the program until the end of December this year. The program is being funded through UNHCR.
IRD has contacted us to send a container of new winter clothing. The container is expected to arrive in December to provide warmth during the winter months. Despite the hardship the Syrian refugees are facing, we are hoping the clothing will bring smiles to many children and families.
Click below for the story on their clothing distribution during Eid, a day that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadhan.
Update 2/26/15 GCHope is still accepting new clothing for Syrian refugees. Please drop off at our Buena Park, California facility. If you are not near our California location we cannot reimburse for shipping.
