REFUGEE CHILDREN IN THE WORLD TODAY.
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

keep refugees in host countries close to Syria.

taking the bus to school
The Karam Team visited villages Anjara, Kirikhan, and Koecali in Turkey populated with many Syrian refugee families who can’t afford the bus transportation costs needed to send their school kids to school. We registered over 150 children in the nearest school, and hired a bus to transport them back and forth. $50 a month covers the bus expenses for 2 kids to go to school. This project will transform these communities of refugees and help them to support their children’s futures.
Karam Foundation is excited to introduce you to this amazing group of Syrian kids who need your support today.
When you sponsor one of these families, you will be changing their lives now and for the future.
