Don't forget Syria
Thank you for visiting my website! It means you heard something about my Don't Forget Syria project, and thereby about the appalling situation in Syria.
Since about five months I've been crossing the Turkish-Syrian border frequently in order to give help to civilian families in Syria. The project isn't just meant to give help, but most of all hope. I remember all too well the tv clips with screaming civilians, Syrians wondering out-loud why they've never seen any international help or care.
It is exactly this feeling that I want to counter. And that is the very reason that I -thanks to your donations and a number of wonderful Syrians than help me- have been able to give 600 blankets and over 32 tons of food to affected families in and around Aleppo.
In order to keep all this clear and organized for you, I will briefly take you throught the proces:
- Your donations are welcome via PayPal or via my bank account number (IBAN)
- The Dutch NGO Wilde Ganzen adds 55% to all donations and subsequently wires everything back to my bank account
- I buy the help-products locally in Turkey. Food is delivered 'at home' and with friends we assemble the food boxes. For the subsequent deliveries I plan on delivering babymilk as well.
- Then, I cross the border, towards Aleppo or somewhere else, after which I (with help) distribute the help-products among Syrian civilians. Of all deliveries a field report is made with photos and a description of what happened and how it went.
- A complete financial account is available and I update it regularly. That way, you can trace your own donation and see that all the money is being spent on Syria. Naturally I pay for all the other expenses (stay, airfares, food/drinks) out of my own pocket. No donations are used for this!
Your donation is very welcome and necessary, so we can keep bringing help and hope to the Syrian population. Hope that they are not being forgotten, hope for them that the world is not looking the other way.
Kind regards and I wish you all the best,
