I’m taking part in Move for Mercy Corps

This March marks 10 years of conflict in Syria.

I am taking on the Move for Mercy Corps 154km challenge and taking steps in solidarity with Syrian Refugees.

154km is the distance from Damascus, Syria to Za’atari Refugee Camp, Jordan, a distance most of us can only imagine travelling to find safety. But for millions of Syrians they had no other option. 

More than 12 million people have been forced to flee their homes since the conflict began on 15th March 2011, with almost half seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, including Jordan.

Mercy Corps has been working with Syrian refugees since the beginning of the conflict, providing emergency assistance to meet basic needs, creating safe spaces for youth and increasing economic opportunities.

Although I may never go through what millions already have, I want to show my support by taking positive action for someone I may never meet.

If you are able to support me by donating, it would be really appreciated!

Thank you!
