Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My name is Douna, I am Syrian, I got a scholarship to do my masters in the UK and I travelled last September to study MA Applied Human Rights at the University of York. My husband stayed in Syria and I was in UK. Later on, he was forced to leave Syria and come to the UK as the situation there was deteriorating and he did not want to participate in the war as if he stayed, he will be forced to do the military service. Abdullah, my husban, was accepted to do a Master of Advanced Studies in Humanitarian Action in CERAH institute, The Unversity of Geneva, on a scholarship. The total tuition fees of the Master and the kiving costs is 35,000 CHF, they will cover 31,000 CHF, but he should pay 4000 CHF. Actually, it is a great chance which will improve his academic knowledge and help me in participating in building peace in Syria when coming back, but we do not have the total amount especially that Abdullah was forced to drop his job and leave Syria because of the bad situation. We live now in the UK, I started searching for a funding resource which may be able to help him. otherwise, he will lose this great opportunity as we will not be able to afford to pay this amount.
I have attached my husband's and my Facebook profiles. I have also attached the page of the masters he will be studying in Geneva
