JOHANNESBURG – A group of South Africans have formed an organisation called Operation SA to urgently raise money, for humanitarian efforts in Syria.
The non-profit organisation says its mission is to reduce human suffering in Aleppo and other parts of Syria by raising few million rand because innocent men, women and children are being slaughtered and thousands are crying for help.
Among those behind the initiative is social activist Yusuf Abramjee, who says they cannot sit back and see the suffering continue.
Abramjee says the organisation will distribute funds to credible charities which are working on the ground as a matter of urgency.
“Men, women and children are being killed. There’s a need for medicines, food, clothing, blankets and shelter. We as so we as South Africans decided to unite under the banner of Operation SA, #Save Syria, to assist with the humanitarian efforts.”
