Three-year-old Aylan Kurdi died wearing the shoes his parents put on him for his long journey. His clothes were cared for. He was well-nourished. Obviously loved.
His parents wanted him to grow up safe, not in a nation split by civil war and ruled by a tyrant. They risked everything to give him a better life. But he died.
He died wearing the shoes his daddy bought him.
While his parents struggled to take him somewhere safe, he drowned.
He died in the arms of his mother who loved him so much, that she gave her life trying to protect him.
And when his lifeless little body washed ashore, he still wore his shoes.
Together, we can help to save the next Aylan Kurdi.
The war in Syria has displaced half of the country -- more than 3.6 million people are living in refugee camps.
Many lived a middle class life in Syria… doctors, lawyers, professionals, teachers… but now everything has been taken from them.
More than 6.5 million children have been impacted since the crisis began five years ago.
Together, you and I can help these children.
Thanks to a grant from USAID, donations will have six times the impact to help refugee children and their families.
Thank you for your support!
Thanks for helping Faith on the Fringe save the next Aylan Kurdi.
