Mission Accomplished! New Blankets for Syrian Refugees!

Since the beginning of the violence in 2010, hundreds of thousands of Syrian refuges fled their homes with very little belongings.  Most lack basic necessities, such as food, medicine and clothing.  As USFMEP’s main objectives are to provide emergency relief, save lives and protect livelihoods, the Blanket Donation Drive was organized and made possible with the help and hospitality of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship and the Saint Bartholomew’s Church in New York City.  Following a highly successful turnout, USFMEP’s mission was realized by the efforts of the Mennonite Central Committee, which packaged and delivered the blankets directly to the Syrian refugee communities in the Middle East.

USFMEP was able to accomplish this goal and donate many new blankets to aid these Syrian refugees and victims of the civil war, with many thanks to the particular efforts from the Mennonite Central Committee, the Episcopal Peace Fellowship at Saint Bartholomew’s Church, as well as all those who expressed their kindness and generosity by donating for this cause.  USFMEP continues to hope that the current crisis will soon be resolved and the return of many of those displaced will soon be realized.
