Our club has recently become involved with an amazing organization, NuDay Syria. NuDay Syria supports and encourages women to develop social & business skills. These women and children have not only been displaced from their home and country, but their family nucleus has been destroyed, as they have lost their husbands and providers.  Skills are taught such as knitting and other hands-on skills with the intention to support themselves, so that these women can become producers & providers.  NuDay Syria employs people on the ground in Syria and Turkey to receive the vessels and deploy the contents to lesser known and smaller camps.
In New Hampshire, Nadia has brought together caring, compassionate individuals all of whom recognize suffering and, under their watch, will not be bystanders to the brutality. The numbers are staggering.  In 2016, the United Nations (UN) identified 13.5 million Syrians requiring humanitarian assistance, of which more than 6 million are internally displaced within Syria, and over 4.8 million are refugees outside of Syria. In January 2017, UNHCR (The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, also known as the UN Refugee Agency), counted 4,863,684 registered refugees. The death toll is approaching ½ million.
NuDay Syria connects our lives with others out of compassion and the belief that we are of one world, and as Nadia states “one humanity.”
