Earlier this spring, JFS of Metrowest, in partnership with the Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees (MFA) and generous support provided by The Shapiro Foundation, committed to sending a shipboard container full of personal care, medical and other supplies to children and families living in refugee camps inside Syria. This project allowed schools, faith groups and community members to come together with the combined mission to take action for Syrian refugee families.
We are excited to share that on Aug. 9, the Mobilize Boston shipping container arrived at our local partner warehouse in northwest Syria! This JFS-MFA initiative shipped 13,801 items including clothing and medical, educational and personal care supplies to Syrian families living in refugee camps. Our local nonprofit partner in Syria shared that they were very grateful and pleased with the quality and quantity of supplies received.
