We hope this message reaches you and your families in good health, and would like to take a moment to once again thank previous donors on their continued support, and thank new donors for contributing to a cause that is dear to the hearts of the Margarity members, your support has prevented many families from suffering the loss of a loved one from starvation. You may not think so, but even the smallest amounts have been very impactful. Thank you.
Due to the pandemic, we have changed our usual approach of gathering as much funding as we could, and then spending that money during winter to buy wood, warm clothing and other materials to "give warmth to syrian refugees this winter" and have instead shifted our focus more to providing packets of food this summer as we thought that using the money right now would do more good than delaying it to the winter months. These packets contain what we consider to be the most basic items that could be used long term: oil, flour, legumes, rice, bulgur, tomatoe purée, biscuits, salt, sugar etc.
We would like to remind that typically, we refrain from doing such changes but we thought it was imperitive to act now, in a way that would save more lives and help more people. We aim to collect more funding to also do as our project says, and help the refugees keep warm during the colder, winter times too.
Just like we keep the refugees in our thoughts and prayers, we too keep you and your families in our prayers and wish that you all are safe and healthy.
