A Giving Christmas

At its core, Christmas is a time of giving. A time of standing up for the vulnerable and helping those in need.

It does not have to be a major gesture or lifestyle choice. It does not need to be at the expense of your other plans this Christmas. But by doing something as simple as donating to a charity or standing up for a cause you believe in, you can make the world a fairer place as we head into the New Year. 


1. Volunteering

Volunteering with a charity is a fantastic way to make a positive difference this Christmas. Being a good volunteer requires two things: selflessness and generosity. The motive should not be one of personal gain, but of helping the vulnerable and contributing to a fairer world. 

Although Christmas is a time for friends and family, it is also a time for supporting good causes and taking action for humanity. Even if you only have a couple of hours to spare this festive period, volunteering is a wonderful way to spend them. 

Syria Relief offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities, all of which are crucially important in achieving our goal of a Syria where all people live with dignity and security. From assisting with community events to helping out at our head office, there are a variety of ways for you to be a part of the work we do. 


2. Championing a cause 

Championing a cause is also a fantastic way to make a positive difference. Whether it's organising a petition or raising awareness on social media, it is a crucial part of creating change and shining a light on the issues that matter. 

This is hugely important to us here at Syria Relief - the people of Syria need to be given a voice so that the world takes notice of their plight and does everything possible to help. 

We are always on the lookout for assistance in our goal of ensuring that Syria is not forgotten. Find out more about how you can get involved. 


3. Donating

The simplest way to give to those in need this Christmas is to donate to charity. Regardless of how much you are able to donate, it is a fantastic gesture that has a lasting positive impact. 

It is also an excellent way to feel connected to a cause that you are passionate about. Knowing what your donation has helped to achieve is a hugely rewarding feeling; one that demonstrates how every gesture, no matter how small, contributes to something bigger. 

We use donations to work towards our vision of a Syria in which all people live in peace and prosperity. From building new water wells to providing life-saving food aid, the support of our donors is instrumental in implementing our projects. 

This Christmas, the people of Syria face unprecedented suffering. With humanitarian needs increasing by the day, parents must make impossible choices to survive, such as feeding their children or keeping them warm. 

With your help, we can ensure that no one is left behind this Christmas. Find out more about how you can make a difference today.
