SUPPORT REFUGEES GLOBALLY
Help THE BIG FILL!
From now until April 1, congregations and Jewish organizations throughout Los Angeles are participating in a Temple Emanuel-led campaign called The Big Fill to fill a shipping container with medical and other essential supplies to be shipped by Save the Syrian Children to communities suffering from civil war. Donations can be brought to participating drop-off sites; needed items can be purchased from this Amazon.com wish list; funds can be donated to purchase medical supplies; and those with contacts in the medical community can solicit need supplies.
On Sunday, April 8, 11AM - 2PM, help sort and pack boxes for The Big Fill, and meet the founders of Save the Syrian Children, at Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills.
REACH ACROSS THE WORLD
Jewish World Watch projects include many that support refugees abroad, such as gardening and preschool programs for Darfuri refugees in neighboring countries. There are many ways to support Jewish World Watch efforts, including advocacy, activism, and raising funds and awareness in the annual Walk to End Genocide. Los Angeles teens can join the Jewish World Watch Teen Ambassador Program.
Save The Syrian Children is going where other aid organizations cannot…into the hospitals of Aleppo and Idlib to deliver life-saving medical supplies for the children and innocent civilians bombarded by the Assad regime. Because access to something as simple as gauze or a tourniquet is the difference between a child dying in a Syrian hospital or living a long life. Help save the lives of Syrian children. You can donate money, you can donate goods through a "Fill a Container" donation drive such as The Big Fill (above), or get in touch if you can help collect needed medical supplies.
