Presented by the GAC: This unique non-profit organizes medical teams that travel to Syrian refugee camps in Jordan and Greece. They also collect clothing, furniture, household effects, and medical supplies for refugees in these camps, as well as those who have resettled in Washington State. The desire to help others transcends politics, religion, and sectarian tensions. Rita also has advice for those of us who want to help. Click here for more info.
