The Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM) is collecting new blankets and LuminAID Solar Lanterns to send to the Syrian refugees stuck on the border between Jordan and Syria. The conditions in this make-shift camp are dire. No electricity, food, water, or sanitation. The people there are facing a harsh winter in rough tents, exposed on the open desert with no protection.
SCM plans to send 10,000 blankets, knitted hats, mittens, and socks, and solar lanterns to be distributed to the people stuck on the border between Jordan and Syria. There are approximately 80,000 people there, and the number keeps growing.
New blankets can be sent to SCM’s office at: 3806 Whitman Ave. N., Seattle WA 98103. Lanterns can be ordered online at http://www.luminaid.com/SCM and they will be sent directly to SCM’s office. The lanterns provide a safe, non-combustible light source that is renewable, durable, and efficient.
Monetary donations can be made via SCM’s website at www.scmmedicalmissions.org or by check (made to Salaam Cultural Museum) and sent to their office (3806 Whitman Ave. N., Seattle WA 98103).
SCM is a 501c3 non-profit organization. For more information, visit www.scmmedicalmission.org.
