Nearly 11 million of its people have been displaced in the Syrian civil conflict. Many areas have been severely damaged or destroyed by the ongoing violence, and recent satellite images show that 83 percent of the country’s lights have gone out since the start of the war. Streets, homes and hospitals have been plunged into darkness. The International Rescue Committee provides aid to crisis-affected families, both inside Syria and in the neighboring countries. Already, 71,000 WakaWakas have been given to Syrian families in need. Your gift enables a family to see, study, cook and safely move about after darkness falls without the huge risks and costs of kerosene, batteries or candles.
