Syria: Help US troops get children who survived ISIS back to school
September 1, 2017
Support a positive future for children who suffered under ISIS ideology
Spirit of America is working with US forces in northeast Syria to help children in areas recently liberated from ISIS control. We are providing school supplies and funding classroom repairs so the children can get back to school in September. These children have suffered greatly, living through the atrocities of ISIS rule and a civil war. Education was neglected for years due to the conflict.
Helping Syrian youth return to school will significantly improve the outlook for their futures, make US troops safer, and help prevent further conflict in the fragile region. It will also help counter the psychological damages inflicted on the children during ISIS occupation.
Spirit of America is the only 501(c)(3) non-profit working alongside US servicemembers and diplomats to improve their safety and success. In 2018, Congress recognized us as a partner in “supporting the missions of deployed United States personnel around the world.”
