Again this year, Mercy-USA is bringing a little joy into the lives of kids surviving in some of the worst circumstances imaginable. Children in Aleppo and in the surrounding countryside will be given Eid gifts to lessen the heartache and trauma they’re experiencing right now.
We are also hosting a two-day Eid gala for Palestinian and now Syrian Refugee children in the Beddawi Camp in Lebanon. We have volunteers who will give the kids tram rides, games, sweets and toys. Fun and engaging activities are designed to endear the Syrian and Palestinian children to each other now that they are sharing some of the same dire conditions. These kids live in extreme poverty and this annual party is something they look forward to each year.
