International Fund Drive in Support of Earthquake Victims in Syria.
The U.S. Peace Council (USPC) and the World Peace Council (WPC) have started a joint international fundraising campaign in support of the victims of the recent catastrophic earthquake in Syria, who are facing the consequences of a destructive earthquake without the much needed supplies of food, medicine and shelter as a result of debilitating economic sanctions.
The purpose of this fund drive is to raise the necessary funds for the purchase and shipment of medical supplies and equipment to the victims of earthquake in Syria, in direct coordination and cooperation with the Syrian Red Crescent, in accordance with the General License No. 23 of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, “Authorizing Transactions Related to Earthquake Relief Efforts to Syria.”
This fundraising effort is being processed through our USPC Peace Education Fund, which is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit fund, and all contributions made will be tax-deductible.
We consider solidarity a human duty, especially in this case, given the devastating human condition caused by the recent earthquake. We invite all true supporters of humanitarian causes to help the suffering people of Syria in these very difficult times.
We ask you to make a contribution to this effort. Your contributions will only be used for purchasing and shipping of medical supplies and equipment for the victims of the earthquake in Syria without any administrative deductions.
Please accept our sincere thanks for your generous support.
