With no solution to the conflict in sight, most of the 4 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt see no prospect of returning home in the near future, and have little opportunity to restart their lives in exile.
Globalink staff, known for their Team-Work spirit, took the task to their hands and raised USD 2500 for UNICEF and UNHCR refugee crisis programs. Overall situation is deteriorating rapidly. Millions of refugees, especially children are suffering from trauma and ill health. “We simply can’t watch this misery and do nothing”, said Siddique Khan, CEO of Globalink. UNICEF and UNHCR provide basic and necessary humanitarian aid for refugees and help the most vulnerable refugees with urgently needed relief - cash for medicine and food, stoves and fuel for heating, insulation for tents, thermal blankets and winter clothing. By helping refugees in the surrounding region, UNHCR hopes to reduce the number of desperate Syrians resorting to smugglers and falling prey to traffickers to reach safety elsewhere.
