This month, our very own Adil Aslam will be heading off to the Turkey-Syria border to support SKT Welfare’s winter emergency response, and we’ll be backing the cause by making a £2,000 donation.
With shelter, warmth and food hard to come by for many in Syria at present, SKT Welfare are delivering blankets, hygiene kits, food parcels and heaters to those in need, and Adil will be joining workers there to show commitment to a cause he cares about.
“I wanted to work with SKT Welfare as they have a 100 per cent donation policy, meaning everything we donate goes to those who need it,” Adil said. “With daily downpours and reports of snow on the way, the humanitarian crisis in Syria is more desperate than ever, and I’m glad to be able to help make these tough times a little more bearable.
“As well as delivering the things these people need most, we’ll also be building homes – known as Safe Havens – for those who have been forced to leave their own homes because of conflict.”
We wish Adil the very best of luck as he works to support this critical mission. We’ll share more about his work when he returns from Syria.
