(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The uae public turned up in large numbers to donate and also to educate their children about the plight of syrian refugee families.

the big heart campaign that organised a fundraiser to help raise money for syrian refugee children at mirdif city centre from may 25-31 has ended on a high note. the uae public turned up in large numbers to donate and also to educate their children about the plight of syrian refugee families.

patron of the big heart campaign shaikha jawaher bint mohammed al qasimi wife of the ruler of sharjah and unhcr eminent advocate for refugee children summed up the event by saying: “just as children graduate to a higher form of education our campaign has ‘graduated’ to a new level of awareness by showing the public that education can put together the pieces of what war has broken: broken homes broken dreams and broken communities. by joining hands at this fundraising event the people of the uae have become a shining symbol ofope proving that we can create heartwarming stories of generosity and courage.”

the campaign has graduated from its emergency relief phase to the education phase in which it will put syrian children back into school after their education was violently disrupted by bombs and shelling.

over 4000 schools have either been destroyed or converted into emergency shelters according to the unhcr and unicef.

the fundraisers will add to the 13 million raised by the campaign over the past year which has touched hundreds of thousands of syrian lives by providing emergency healthcare warm clothing blankets shelter food and other relief.

every 15 seconds another syrian becomes a refugee in jordan lebanon iraq and other neighboring countries. as the conflict intensifies the fundraising efforts will also intensify to keep pace with the number of victims. donors are requested to send funds through ‘salam ya seghar’ endorsed by shaikha jawaher.
