Karam is dedicated to providing longterm support in the form of Smart Aid for Syrian refugee families in need. We strive not to just place aid-bandaids but instead develop sustainable, future-building tools that: stabilize families, educate children, and prevent child labor, discourage early teen marriages, and keep refugees in host countries close to Syria. In Fall 2015, Karam signed up the first 18 families in our sponsor program and 35 children began attending school. Some of the children are in child labor; all of them live in extreme poverty. 

Our family sponsor program combines the latest developments in humanitarian aid proven to make the most effective impact on refugee families who have lost everything: cash support + education. Every refugee family who joins the program will receive a monthly stipend on the condition that they send their kids to school.

YOU CAN HELP US BUILD OUR FUTURES

By contributing $50 a month, you'll join other donors to ensure we have an access to quality education and a safe home. Karam will send you periodic updates on your
sponsored family in the months of March, June, September, December. If you have not received an update, email sponsorfamily@karamfoundation.org.

Our #Milk4Syria project aims to ensure communities inside Syria have a stable and consistent supply of infant formula each month. The infant formula is purchased at a wholesale rate and delivered to communities inside Syria and distributed via local Syrian relief organizations and volunteers. 

The Milk4Syria Distribution Centers, are located in the cities of Binnish, Jisr el Shogour and Maarat Noman in Northern Syria. They run on a monthly voucher system which is dependent upon the need of the family and the number of infants that require infant formula.

This project has been ongoing since September 2013.

 

KARAM HAS DISTRIBUTED OVER 68,000 UNITS OF INFANT FORMULA

TO MORE THAN 41,000 FAMILIES INSIDE NORTHERN SYRIA

Karam Foundation supports the White Helmets' efforts of saving lives in Syria. These brave men and women risk their lives to pull out victims of barrel bombs out of the rubble and destruction. The White Helmets rescue workers believe that saving one life is like saving all of humanity. To date, the White Helmets volunteers have saved over 22 thousand lives. Karam is proud and humbled to be able to support their humanitarian efforts in any way we can.

Every summer Karam Foundation provides hundreds of families inside Syria with boxes of basic food supplies that cover one family's meals for an entire month. These boxes are distributed in several devastated areas. Packages usually contain flower, spices, salt, sugar, lentils, pasta, olives, cooking oil, rice, burgul, and instant milk.

This past fall, Karam Foundation sponsored a community initiative to provide families with locally grown potatoes and cooking oil. This sustainable project not only supports hundreds of families and local farmers inside Syria, but also creates a positive impact on the local economy and agriculture.

To help ease their suffering in cold homes and freezing schools, Karam Foundation dedicated December and January to distribute winter relief to thousands of Syrians in need. Help us provide winter packages for thousands of families, provide heating systems for hundreds of schools such as wood-burning heaters, wood and heating fuel across Syria. In the past, we have distributed to Aleppo, Damascus, Zabadani, Daraa, Rif Idlib, and Rif Homs.

This is one of Karam's annual seasonal Smart Aid programs.
