4 things you can do to help the anguished people in Aleppo

Here are four things you can to help those in Aleppo who are victims of destruction and violence. 

1. Get informed so you can advocate effectively. Learn about the crisis in Syria here. 

2. Call the congressional phone numbers below and leave a voicemail to urge a resolution to the crisis and end the bloodshed. Let them know you want the government to do more than “condemn the violence.” 

White House (202) 456-1111
Speaker Ryan (202) 225-3031
Senate Majority Leader McConnell (606) 864-2026
Senate Minority Leader Schumer (202) 224-6542

3. Donate through the UCC to deliver medical assistance and food to families in Aleppo and other starving areas of Syria. Enter “Help Aleppo” in the “I want my gift designated to” box.  

4. Pray for the estimated 50,000 to 100,000 men, women, and children suffering right now and for a ceasefire to allow them to evacuate.
