Syrian Fundraiser

 

The children of Syria have been enduring nearly three years of strife due to lack of food, education, and medical supplies. Every day, they die from stray shells and bullets, torture, starvation, malnutrition, and other preventable diseases such as polio, waterborne  illnesses, and wound infections.

Many have been orphaned and tortured. Out of desperation they eat off grass, garbage, and stray animals in order to fill their hungry
bellies. They are deprived from education because of destroyed school buildings and inaccessibility to books and school supplies. In summary, they are being stripped of their childhood. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can make a difference.

By joining UB student organizations at the Ramada Inn in Amherst on December 7, 2013, at 630 pm, you will have the chance to save the lives of thousands of Syrian children who need us more than ever. Please join us for this noble cause. Event details are attached with the flyer below.

Guest Speaker
Mohammed Ghanem, A former professor from the University of Damascus and senior political adviser for the Syrian American Council in Washington DC. His topic: “Syria from Baath Takeover to Geneva II: Conflict and Prospects for Negotiations”

The Ba’ath Party seized power in Syria in the early 1960s, effectively beginning a decades-long era of dynastic rule by the house of Assad. Half a century of Ba’athist rule sowed the seeds of the conflict that is gripping Syria today. How did the conflict in Syria begin? How has it
evolved? And what are the prospects for a negotiated peace?
