In March 2011 an estimated 11 million Syrians have fled their homes due to the outbreak of the civil war. Now, in the sixth year of war, 13.5 million are in need of humanitarian assistance within the country. On May 15th we hosted an Art Show at the Indian Valley Country Club displaying art pieces created by Syrian Refugee children. The purpose of this show, which will be moved to the Associates in Hearing office for at least the next month was to raise awareness about the refugees and to raise funds for future trips.
In case you missed the show here are three ways you can still make an impact:
1. Spread the word!: Treating hearing healthcare in places where it’s uncommon is not easy. Through donations and support, we can change lives everywhere, and that’s possible when people know about it.
2. Buy a print or make a donation: Every dollar raised goes to a good cause. Whether it’s directly to the Syrian children and their families or helping fund our mission trips across the world, your money helps people receive the care they need.
3. Donate your old hearing aids: Old devices may not be useful for you, but through Entheos, we can refurbish old devices so people with hearing loss can be properly treated. Bring them with you to the show or drop them off at our office anytime!
