Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubarak! As Ramadan comes to an end, we would like to thank you for supporting Syrian Forum USA during the past month. Because of your generosity, we will continue to help tens of thousands of Syrians rise from the ashes and rebuild their lives.
It’s not too late to make a difference. One more donation means one more Syrian refugee could find a job; one more Syrian child could go to school; one more Syrian community could gain access to safe drinking water. One more donation means one more step toward justice, dignity, and freedom in Syria.

Iman's Story

Iman lost her husband when she was 25 years old. Faced with an uncertain future, she struggled to endure not only her own tragedy but an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in Syria. She relied on her job as an elementary school teacher to provide for her two young boys, Ahmad and Omar. Then her school was bombed. 
“I felt broken and helpless,” Iman said. She lost her husband. She lost her livelihood. She nearly lost hope. 
But then she discovered Syrian Forum. Through one of Syrian Forum’s six institutions, Iman began to rebuild her life. She completed comprehensive training programs, cultivated new skills, and knowledge, and secured a job with an education nonprofit in Syria. Today, not only is Iman able to support her two children, she is empowering her community—passing on the gift of education to the next generation. 
Will you help us empower others like Iman to rebuild their lives and their communities?

Abdul Wahab’s Story

Abdul Wahab had just returned home when the airstrike began. It was not the first time his community, a small town just north of Homs, had faced a brutal attack by the Syrian regime. Before Abdul Wahab could find shelter, a bomb exploded in the street, seriously injuring him and partially destroying his home—reducing treasured belongings and precious memories to ashes.

As a young man living in Syria, Abdul Wahab had endured one injustice after another—forced displacement, indiscriminate violence, and imminent arrest. To many, Abdul Wahab’s future seemed hopeless. But not to us.

Through Syrian Forum’s education and empowerment programs, Abdul Wahab began to rebuild his life. He joined Syrian Forum’s Youth Support Center in Homs, where he participated in psychosocial support sessions, completed English and computer classes, and developed new skills to restore and rebuild his community.

Today, will you help us empower thousands of others like Abdul Wahab?
