REMEMBERING THE REFUGEES
“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world, is and remains immortal.”
Remembering the REFUGEES 2017 FUNDS RAISED THUS FAR...
Founded in 2012, Epsilon Alpha Sigma's annual Remembering the Refugees charity event is devoted to showcasing the beauty that lies within our Arab culture while raising funds to abet a humanitarian crisis in the Arab World. Hosting this annual event is a requirement set upon each chapter by the National Board. In this event's infancy, we have collectively raised an estimated $40,000 towards medical aid, transportation services and educational resources towards refugees in the Arab region. In creating this tradition, our founder's aim was to make a direct positive change to those who are affected by conflicts in the region. By stepping away from the politics that have influenced the lives of so many who live in refugee camps, our sisters are able to focus on how to help rebuild the lives of these refugees.
As of 2016, our funds from the Remembering the Refugees will go towards the Kayany Foundation / Friends of Kayany. The Kayany Foundation is an NGO that provides free education to Syrian refugees living in informal tented settlements in Lebanon. Epsilon Alpha Sigma values Kayany's work in providing such education resources. Two of our doves visited a few of Kayany's schools, below are some photos from their visit.
