Target: SOS Children’s Villages Norwegia
Goal: Applaud SOS Children’s Villages for its effort to provide Syrian children with warm clothing
As a result of a ravaging civil war in the country of Syria, over 6.5 billion Syrians have been displaced inside the country. Nearly 2 million more Syrians have fled to neighboring countries. The situation is especially cruel for children. The winters of Syria are severe and unforgiving, and many of the people were forced to quickly flee their homes had no choice but to leave behind their heavy winter clothing.
The Norwegian branch of SOS Children’s Villages believes that it can help the children of Syria by providing them with one of the most important things they need to survive the winter: warmth. The branch has already started a campaign to raise money in order to provide the children of Syria with warm winter clothes and mattresses.
As part of its campaign, SOS Children’s Villages had published a touching video recorded via hidden camera, portraying kind strangers relinquishing their coats and jackets to a shivering boy at a bus stop. One of the goals of the heart-warming video was to parallel the children of Syria with the shivering Norwegian boy. The video has successfully attracted a considerable amount of attention to the situation that the children of Syria are currently enduring. The efforts of SOS Children’s Villages will no doubt bring the children warmth during the severe Syrian winter. Sign this petition and commend SOS Children’s Villages for their efforts and compassion.
Dear SOS Children’s Villages Norwegia,
I would like to thank you for all of your admirable efforts to provide the children of Syria with warm winter clothes and mattresses during the harsh winter in their country. As the message of the touching video you have published so clearly expressed, warm clothing is a necessity for the children of Syria.
I believe that since many people are fixated on delivering food and water to the people in Syria, they forget to realize that the icy temperatures and freezing winds pose as much of a threat to the lives of Syrian children and adults as starvation does.
With your efforts, the children of Syria will be warm during the freezing winter. Although their country is being ravaged by a brutal civil war, they will be protected from the severe weather as a result of all your compassion.
[Your Name Here]
