#HeartsforHumanity Estimated Reading Time: 1.5 minutes.
Someone once said no one leaves their home unless their home is the mouth of a shark. This is especially true in the recent case of the Syrian Refugee Crisis. World Vision has labeled the Syrian refugee crisis as the worst humanitarian crisis, not falling short from The World War II refugee crisis. It’s funny how history seems to repeat itself again and again, yet we do nothing. We just watch and wait for someone much greater and more powerful to make a difference. The truth is you can make a difference.
I have dedicated my last 2 years of high school to provide the proper physical and emotional necessities needed by the refugees. I have also written a 20 page research-based essay and drafted a bill, which is in progress of being introduced to the Texas Government. You may ask, “Why are you doing this if you are not Syrian or Arab?” Why am I going out my own way to care for someone I might never meet? The answer is quite simple. I’m human and they are too.
“ True believers are those who shelter and help the refugees, and (as for) those who believed and fled and struggled hard in Allah’s way, and those who gave shelter and helped, these are the believers truly; they shall have forgiveness and honorable provision.[8.74]
Heart of Humanity is a new initiative that uses former tactics to raise funds and shed light on the Syrian Refugee Crisis. With your help we are able to help the needs of the Syrian refugees! You can either go on your Facebook and share those sad videos or you can make a change now by getting your local MSA and greater community involved!
So, ready, set, go!
