Activity Updates 2018 - 2020
2020 Year in Review: Despite living through a pandemic in 2020, our supporters still came through with their generosity. Your donations continued to provide much needed relief as follows:
UNICEF Syrian Relief Efforts: We supported the Syrian Relief efforts through UNICEF, who with their partners, are still able to provide direct support to children in Syria affected by the conflict. You can visit the UNICEF Partners page to see SAWA listed. You can watch this 'Virtual Tour to Syria" to learn more about their efforts on the ground.
Local Syrian Refugees: Your donations supported Syrian refugees in the Greater Washington, D.C. area by providing them with Giant Gift Cards.
Local COVID-19 Support: Thanks to the generosity and support of one of our major donors, we secured 15,000 masks and donated them to the Adventist Healthcare which operates several hospitals and clinics in the area in support of COVID-19 efforts (10K masks), and the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board for Fairfax County (5K masks).

Thanks to your generosity, we raised $23,600. We are continuing to support the education of Syrian Youth and investing in their futures. Thank YOU!
