Who You’d Be Helping

The White Helmets, also known as the Syria Civil Defense, is a volunteer civil defense non-governmental organization that operates in rebel-controlled Syria. Their mission is “to save the greatest number of lives in the shortest possible time and to minimize further injury to people and damage to property.” The bulk of their activity in Syria consists of urban search and rescue, medical evacuation, evacuation of civilians, and essential service delivery. Since the intervention of Russia in Syria, much of the work of the White Helments has been responding to attacks by Russian Air Force attack aircraft, and right now, things are really bad. The White Helmets need our help so they can keep evacuating, rescuing, and aiding civilians trapped in Aleppo.
