Provide Relief for Syrian Refugees
Over 2.4 million Syrians have fled the civil war in their country for the relative safety of neighboring countries. The flow of refugees into camps and host communities continues to swell - far beyond initial expectations - and strain limited resources in the region. Mercy Corps is helping more than 800,000 refugees and community members in Jordan and Lebanon by providing essentials like clothing and blankets, digging wells and building safe places for children to play and be kids. project reportread updates from the field

Why We Speak: Help Spread Syrian Stories
We at 3 Generations are thrilled to be producing the newest film by the Scott Sisters currently titled, "Beyond the Border." The film follows four Syrian refugees and a German professor attempting to establish peace. Most people do not realize that every 15 seconds, a Syrian becomes a refugee and an estimated 2 million Syrians have crossed the border into Lebanon. Lebanon is surrounded by war on all sides. It is a country now at breaking point. Please join us in supporting this new film. project reportread updates from the field

Social Health Care for Syrian Refugees
In any war or conflict, it is the children who are the most vulnerable and devastated. Children are the largest and fastest growing number of victims in the Syrian conflict. We are working to heal a whole generation of Syrian children from the deep and life draining trauma of violence. Our Social Health Care Program (SHC) expeditiously trains hundreds of local therapists in emergency trauma recovery skills. SHC can immediately provide trauma healing services now and into the future. project reportread updates from the field
