AMALIAH CALLS ON ISRAEL TO OPEN THE BORDER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN FLEEING ASSAD’S MURDEROUS REGIME

 

Seven years ago, Moti Kahana, the founder of Amaliah, was at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem, when he realized that his Romanian family was killed by their own government, and not the Nazis.

 

Now, after his recent visit to Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam, Kahana is calling on Israel to provide a temporary refuge to Syrian women and children fleeing from government forces, where Assad’s forces have been pounding villages around Daraa in Southern Syria, killing 65 and displacing hundreds of families.

 

Amaliah, with the help of thousands of supporters from around the world, will begin running the the Anne Frank Bus, provide Better Shelters for those at the border, and set up a school in Quinetra on the border with Israel

 

Since 2015, Amaliah has been calling for the creation of a Safe Zone along the border of Israel and Syria. After Russia and Syria abandoned this, now Syrians who have been relatively safe from most of Assad’s atrocities, are facing the same predicament as millions of Syrians around the country: slaughter. This is the community that Amaliah has been closely working with over the last several years, providing medical care and humanitarian aid, and forging connections and friendships. We will not stop fighting for the safety of the Syrian people along Israel’s border.

 

Anne Frank and her family almost escaped, but England and the United States refused them visas. Seventy-five years later, Moti Kahana is pleading with Israel to do the right thing and save as many refugee children as possible.

Amaliah is calling for Israel to open the border and allow the ANNE FRANK BUS to bring Syrian children into Israel for safety!

Amaliah first started its Bus of Angels in 2016, where for the first time, Syrian women and children were brought into Israel for treatment at hospitals and clinics.

#AMALIAHOMES, A Campaign to set up 2,000 Better Shelters on Israel's border with Syria

 

 

Developed over 5 years by the Ikea Foundation and UNHCR, these shelters' solar panels and durability have made a remarkable difference in the lives of millions of refugees. 

Following the offensive by the Syrian regime and Russia against the local population in the Daraa district in southern Syria, 375,000 refugees fled their homes and are now concentrated in camps on the Israeli and Jordanian borders.

This is the community that Amaliah has been closely working with over the last several years, providing medical care and humanitarian aid, and forging connections and friendships. We will not stop fighting for the safety of the Syrian people along Israel’s border.

 

BETTER SHELTERS

Amaliah is partnering with the Safadi Center to establish a school for Syrian refugee children in Quinetra, on the border with Israel.
 

 

 

All funding will go towards constructing several shelters to accommodate 300-500 children, school supplies and teacher salaries. 

 

"If we gave only food and humanitarian aid we let them live, but if we set up a school and give them education, we give them a future with hope. " --Mendi Safadi, founder of the Safadi Center for International Diplomacy and Human Rights
