How to help the Syrian victims: A comprehensive list of 20+ outstanding organizations.

If you’ve taken some time to watch the atrocious results of the chemical gas attack on Syrian citizens in the village of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib this week, I’m sure you’ve spent some time feeling as outraged and helpless and heartbroken as I have and wondering how to help the Syrian victims.

Doing something positive has always made me feel somewhat less helpless, and gives me a constructive way to channel my feelings, even if it’s just donating a few dollars where I can.

Two nights ago, I found a brilliant Twitter thread from Eeman Abbasi, a Muslim-American student at the University of Connecticut and a founder of More than 10K.

The thread is packed with outstanding resources. I urge you to click over to her account @eemi for continued updates and resources; but here, I’m going to lay out the amazingly comprehensive list of organizations she shared, as well as others I love, all of which would be so grateful for any support at all that you can offer.

Edited to add: A few more organization suggestions have been rolling in since we first published, and we’ll update with some additions below. How grateful we are to know so many people are dedicating themselves to so much good — and that includes our readers sharing other tips with us.
