We Are Requesting Your Support To Help!

Zipline Challenge:
Sajid will be ziplining the longest zipline in the world, in the mountainous region of Ras Al Khaimah (UAE) certified by The Guinness World Records, which is the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates. He will be taking on this challenge to raise funds for the cause below. The Jebel Jais zipline is the closest experience to flying like a falcon crossing the skies of the mountains at 1680 metres from the ground reaching speeds upto 150 km/hour.

My Request:
As the war in Syria grinds into its seventh year this month, a vital building block of the country's future has fallen victim to carnage: The education of its Children. About 1.75 million children and youth in Syria are out of school and most are upto six years behind in their education, according to a report published this year by The International Rescue Committee.

Human Appeal is securing vital funds to support-empowering conflict affected children in Aleppo governorate in Syria. The projects main intervention is to provide quality education to the students. The project will provide learning materials which enhance the learning environment. The activities will focus on teaching the bases of languages through provision of quality education in:
Dir Hassan & Batbu schools in northern Syria- including hifz.

Dir Hassan School
Will continue to provide the provision of quality education and safe learning spaces for 647 vulnerable conflict affected children
(433 Girls & 214 Boys)

Batbu School
Will continue to provide the provision of quality education and safe learning spaces for 450 vulnerable conflict affected children
(296 Girls & 154 Boys)


Together WE can raise awareness & funds to help:
There is no better reason to do this than for charity, living in the UK we are fortunate enough to have a roof over our heads and food on the table, however the crisis in war torn Syria and other parts of the world suffer from necessities that we take for granted. 

So please dig deep into your pockets and donate generously.
