Covering the costs of transporting the humanitarian aid we send is a continuing process and we are keen to ask everyone to get involved in helping me with this. As we are all volunteers the money we raise is spent on covering the costs of transporting our aid to it's destination, buying aid and minimal overheads.
If you have done any fundraising for Samara's Aid Appeal, we would love to see your pictures.
If you would like to help raise money to support the new hospital we are opening with our partners in Syria, perhaps you would consider hosting a dinner or themed evening in which you can invite friends and talk about the medical challenges in Syria. If each or some guests was willing to commit to a monthly standing order of £10, it wouldn’t take long to reach £50 or £100 per month in standing orders from one evening. The giving forms can be printed from the website www.samarasaidappeal.org/giving and we can provide some relief reports you can read in advance so that you understand the issues and challenges.
Here are some links to fundraising resources that you can download and use to help you raise money to support our work, in particular our hospitals in Syria:
