When It Rains, It Pours
The saying once again holds true, after the month-old formed Big Heart For Syrian Refugee Children Campaign received more donations recently from different organizations and individuals. A total of Dhs 4.1 million (around USD 1.1 million) is to be added to the previous donations of the campaign since its inception last 20th of June by Shaikha Jawaher Bint Mohammad Al Qasimi, Wife of His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, in her capacity as the Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs and the Eminent Advocate for Refugee Children for the UN refugee agency (UNHCR).
Among the donors of the above mentioned amount are Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) with Dhs 2 million, Sharjah Ladies Club with Dhs 1 million collected during Suhoor, Mr. Hamid Jaffar Chairman of the board of the Crescent Group of Companies, and his wife Mrs. Sawsan Jaffar with Dhs 1 million; and Mr. & Mrs. Majid Jaffar with Dhs 100,000.
As of now, there are 1,846,486 million refugees including children scattered around Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and North Africa due to Syria’s crisis.
It is so heartwarming to know that there are really those few among us, who are willing to stand up and do something for the greater humanity. Big Heart for Syrian Refugee Children Campaign is now getting resounding responses. This remarkable response to help hopefully is just the beginning. It should not stop while Syria’s crisis continues.
